The concept of lunar habitation holds profound implications for scientific exploration, resource utilization, and the expansion of human civilization beyond Earth. This report provides an overview of the economic opportunities, essential technologies, challenges, and a timeline for the development of lunar habitation by 2040 and beyond.


Lunar resources are a potential goldmine, offering economic promise at various time horizons. These resources include water ice for propellant and life support (near term), solar power (medium term), rare minerals and metals (long term), and helium-3 for nuclear fusion (longer term). The growing market demand for lunar-derived resources necessitates an economic analysis, balancing production costs against return on investment. Key factors influencing this analysis include advancements in the energy sector, space-based manufacturing, Earth’s resource constraints, and potential international investments.


Joe Reagan, President of NewSpace Global said: “This report combines the optimism of an explorer with the practicality of an investor. Lunar habitation will create tremendous value in the long-term, but there are numerous technical hurdles to overcome before we get there – this report shows you the way.”
