I hope that when/if we colonize the Moon that it can be an international effort. It would be easier to meet the costs of such a venture if many countries paid for it and not just one. Also, the value of the moon at this time is purely scientific. Building an observatory on the dark side of the moon will give us a better view of the stars than any Earth-based observatory because of the absence of light pollution. And developing the skills to colonize the Moon will aid in the endeavor of eventually colonizing Mars. I think such scientific and engineering gains should be shared by all nations.
