We began in Africa, settled the other continents. Now it is time to cross another sea and make the Moon part of Greater Earth. Then expand to Mars, Europa, and beyond and become Solarians. We need to alter the statement in Genesis (dust to dust) to read "Of Stardust thou art, to the Stars thou shalt return. ) There is so much unexplored capacity in being human! And the result of our expansion cannot but help make life on Earth better and richer for those who stay behind. On the Moon we will learn to live clean because we will be living in closed environments downwind and downstream of ourselves. The lessons learned can help people on Earth preserve their beautiful planet, even restore some of its lost beauty. There is more capacity in Humanity than Earth alone can bring out.
Moon, Mars, Mercury, yes even Venus, Europa, Titan - other solar systems nearby. In astronomy, observing the Moon, double stars, open clusters. Putting telescopes at Earth Moon, L4 and L5 so that amateurs using them can explore the flanks of the Moon.
