NASA mulls moon-based space station

NASA is mulling over a plan to develop a deep-space station on the moon’s far side.

NASA is considering the plan, which would place astronauts at an earth-moon liberation point to help fast-track the agency’s goal of pushing beyond low-earth orbit with its Orion spacecraft design.

One of the many benefits of this orbiting platform in the moon’s far side would be a boost in multinational co-operation – something that has worked well with the International Space Station.
