The Chinese are planning to be the first ones to do this. I'd imagine a scenario where domed structures are built on lunar soil and extractors are used to glean energy and other resources from our arid neighbour. There is a lot to discover still about the moon and let's not forget that it also contains frozen water at the poles. The moon would be a whole other project radically different from Martian terraforming. I suspect that, initially, the lunar colonies would have to be sustained by regular terrestrial imports. Whatever the case, the lunar affair will be read before the martian one, it seems.

Btw, I'm also enjoying this conversation! ;-)

You should check out the movie "moon".
