Jan Wörner, Director General of the European Space Agency, has a bold new vision for space exploration. “My intention is to build up a permanent base station on the Moon…for different states around the globe,” Wörner said. Mankind has never had a permanent lunar presence, and so this new ‘Moon village’ would be a giant leap in space exploration. The idea is that the Moon base would follow the International Space Station as a global project. “So it will be the Americans, it will be the Russians, it will be the Chinese, it will be the Indians, the Japanese, and even more countries with smaller contributions,” says Wörner.
