6 months

What will it be like on the Moon outpost?

Six months is a long time to be a away from 1.0 G. Away from food, water, near-instantaneous communication, friends, family, "real" air, "real" water, resupply ships, etc.

What if something breaks or fails? It's not like you can pop down to the nearest Home Depot to get some parts... The crew will need to be very creative. They will need a lot of supplies when they land.

Will astronauts get sick of each other?
