Roles for Moon Proponents

1. Congratulations for picking the moon as the best destination for a colony and tours! I am sure after your power point presentation Congress will think it is the best destination, too. You should divide your team up evenly into the following five groups:

 The Astronaut:

As the Astronaut, your group should research all past, present, and future planned missions to the moon and explorations of the moon.


 The Environmental Specialist:

As the Environmental Specialist, your group should research about the moon’s climate, atmosphere, weather, and distance from the sun.


The Geographical Engineer:

As the Geographical Engineer, your group should research all the geographical features of the moon.


The Terraformer:

As the Terraformers, your group should research all the materials one needs to survive in space.


 The Spy:

As the Spy, your group must concentrate on researching Mars. You will use this information to build a case that the moon is the better destination.
