Even though many still find it improbable, the Swedes are the latest group that plan to colonise the moon

Dr. Niklas Järvstråt had a plan over a decade ago to put a colony on the moon.  Järvstråt and the Swedish SMART-Centre, with the help of 50 partners, are ready to try and move one step closer to realistically begin trying to colonise the moon.  Although the colony would be self-sustaining, a symbiotic relationship will obviously need to be arranged with groups on Earth.  Research will continue in the second quarter of 2006, with a self-sufficient manufacturing process facility being developed within the next five years. 

"The principle is simple, but not traditional. It is logical, sustainable and very much within our reach, both materially and financially. Why treat a space project as a disposable unit, when it is possible to build a base, which can thrive, expand, and enhance man's benevolent presence in space?"  

Although this still currently sounds too much like something out of the Twilight Zone, only time will tell if lunar colonies are in our future.
