Can We Terraform The Moon?

Are there phenomena capable of destroying the Earth or the human species in seconds?

Many. What options do we humans have if that happens? The conquest of space is the next step that we must take as a species, not only because of the economic benefits that space mining can present but because it is the best way to ensure our survival.

In this conquest towards the last frontier, there is an idea that has gained strength in recent decades: Terraforming. Terraforming a celestial body means molding it so it can sustain life as we know it and make a planet equal to or at least similar to Earth.

Although this has been explored a lot in science fiction, we are increasingly approaching the technological threshold to consider the terraforming of planets and moons as a reality.

Indeed, you’ve heard a lot about terraforming Mars but little about the Moon, and it’s normal to hear about bombarding it with water-filled meteors like it was an easy task, looking to turn it blue and then green, but how true is this? What can we do to terraform the Moon? Is it viable? Let’s find out!
