  • In our society today there are a lot of questions being asked about whether we are going to have to live on the moon, and if so how would we get there and how would we live there once we got there.  After doing an extensive amount of research we concluded that getting to and living on the moon is currently impossible for humans.  We found that the primary reasons for this originates from our own bodies and how our muscles and bones work.  We found that the lack of gravity can have a seriously negative affect on ones health.  It starts with the muscles and bones weekening in the lower gravity enviornment because they do not have to work as hard.  This than has an affect on ones blood flow and eventually the heart and can actually end up killing a human over time.  In addition maintaining proper nutrition for a large population would also be impossible because animals would not be able to survive there for the same reasons humans wouldnt.  In addition, lunar days and nights are two weeks long in earth time, and the sun's rays are far more powerful on the moon than on the earth thus making maintaining our agriculture almost impossible.  We wanted to make an informational video that captured all of this information, but in a slightly humurous and light manner.  We ended up finishing all of our illustations and animations however we did not have time to render any of the videos except for one.

    Right now there is no sound with this video, but this is the portion of the script that this animation is for. 

    "That all sounds great, but there are, of course, complications. First off, there is the cycle of day and night on the moon. Measured in earth days, a moon­day is 2 weeks long, and the night is just as long. Not only does this make solar power impossible without more efficient energy storage..."
