Terraformed Moon by DeathCl0ck Terraformed Moon by DeathCl0ck
The Moon is the only natural satellite of Earth. It has caves which may serve as refuge from cosmic radiation and other damaging effects from space. It has recently become apparent, by collision of L-cross into the Moon’s South Pole, that it also has plenty of water in forms of ice. The discovery of spectral shift which identified water, led scientist renew their enthusiasm for a lunar outpost. Analysis of water on a mostly pristine environment might have recorded events of our solar system shortly after the Moon’s formation. A notable atmosphere must be created before terraforming can begin. However, the Moon is too small to hold an atmosphere so putting a global giant air dome or replenishing the atmosphere as needed.

how have you made this athmosphere it Looks so realistic ...??
i gota give it to you this is so realistic , beside some hard edges it look so real espacially the atmos haze
Bloody amazing :)

Yes, great idea. It would be awesome if it were possible, although I can't even imagine (political) complications that would manifest from this if possible! Good work though!
the idea is good but it's an impossible job the moon is way too small to have a stable good for humans atmosphere since it has 1/6 of Earth's gravity pluss the lack of core that would create a magnetic field to protect said atmosphere, same problem with Mars, and Venus, both are incapable of producing a magnetic field

Yeah, I already know all of these things. Still won't stop me from creating them though. :)
:icondarthsithari: what your saying is that the moon becoming habitable is a hypothetical and not an impossibility?

Eh, for me entertaining ideas is always a fun endeavor. So don't put much stock into my planet designs. I just creates these "hypothetical" worlds out of sheer amusement anyway.

I also plan on Terraforming Venus and Mars sometime in the future too.

This is definitely a cool idea, but the mechanics of it are worrisome. I wonder how they would keep such an atmosphere from simply diffusing or blowing away (same problem on Mars, currently). Ideally, this would involve jump-starting its core (assuming it has not completely solidified, which seems to be the case). And then who knows what kind of effect the resulting magnetic field would have on Earth.

Interesting detail with the caves, there. Did not know that one.
