Would you live on the moon? Neither would I, but NASA seems to think that building an outpost on the moon is "an essential step toward eventually settling other planets". There is even a habitability design center at NASA tasked with creating this living space on the moon.

When we talk about design and tech on unplggd, technology, style and entertainment are the name of the game, but for people living on the moon, protection from solar radiation and recycling sweat and urine for reuse in a waterless environment are the key things for design.
