Since Galileo saw the mountain in the month of the seventeenth century, humans have been itching to go there.
When the Apollo mission made it happen in 1969, the US space program began to imagine a complicated future on the moon. In 1984, a NASA symposium on the topic was held after his organization "realized the 2000 space transportation technology would be able to routinely carry cargo to the moon" and thought they should begin planning ahead.
Unfortunately, no country on Earth has space transportation technology that is able to make regular visits to the moon in 2000. In addition, we have little idea of the true nature of the lunar surface.
