This housing unit for a family of four is designed to withstand extremes of temperature, dry rot, low gravity conditions, and is shielded against cosmic rays. It can be implanted with or without basement into any sufficiently dry surface, and is superbly coated to remain in good cosmetic condition even after years of use. Its lightweight construction allows for assembly from small parts in situ, yet the resulting form seems sturdy and solid. It therefore fulfills the psychological demands of its occupants for it to be protective, sheltering, and sufficiently shielded from the outside.

The special static properties of the Moon Unit render it unsuited for planets with gravity higher than 0.3 g, therefore, despite its low price, it is not to be used as a basic family unit for settlements on the planets Earth, Venus, or even Mars, but extremely well suited for the planets Mercury and Pluto, the Moon of the Earth, Phobos and Deimos of Mars, or the moons of Jupiter or most of Saturn’s moons, and the 13 moons of Neptune.    Experimental Moon Unit Design (c) 2017 Torsten Slama and International Publications World Wide
