Moon Base

Moon Base AR

When and if humans return to the Moon, they'll likely want to set up a base camp where they could eat, sleep and work. This model is based on modules that the private space company Bigelow Aerospace proposes sending to the Moon; Bigelow has launched unmanned craft of similar design into Earth orbit, where they remain today.
