With NASA preparing to establish a lunar outpost upon Earth's nearest neighbor, there have been various proposals on how to house the astronauts upon the Moon.

Here is a video by Architecture and Vision on what they envision NASA's first Lunar will look like.

While NASA has yet to indicate whether they are in favor of roaming space bases, or one that remains stationary, one design element seems to be clear--inflatable lunar bases seem to be gaining favor with the space agency (which is probably good news for companies like Architexture and Vision and Bigelow Aerospace).

You can either visit the stars or watch them from afar.

But if you choose the former, you'll definitely get a better view.
