Caption: Moon base. Computer artwork of a US base on the Moon in the lunar night. A permanent base on the Moon would require protective sealed buildings. This is because the Moon has no atmosphere and surface temperatures that range from -170 degrees Celsius at night to 127 degrees Celsius during the day. The lunar day/night cycle takes nearly 30 Earth days to complete. The moon has a gravity that is about a sixth of that on Earth, which may cause health problems for any long-term lunar residents.
