Moon base

December 18, 2006 1:17pm CST
There's talks of a moon base in the news. One of the major obstacles (besides the basics of putting cargo in earth orbit in a more economical way) appears to be the massive radiation a lunar base will be exposed to, a problem any mission outside the earths magnetosphere faces... ...Does anyone have a link to an article on the subject of radiation on the moon, and does anyone have information on whether building a mostly subterrenean base would protect personel living in an underground lunar base?
