NASA Plans for a Lunar Base

A NASA moon base plan is likely to be revealed soon now that Barack Obama has won the presidential election, Space.com reported Friday. NASA wanted to see who would be named president before announcing the ambitious project.

The outpost, called a "gateway spacecraft," would support "a small astronaut crew and function as a staging area for future missions to the moon and Mars," The Orlando Sentinel reported.

Title reads as it's a moon base but if I read it correctly, it would be a floating station probably similar to the ISS just outside the Moon's gravitational pull at the Lagrangian point. I guess that solves the problem of a moon base on the moon and having to time launches to get it correctly to the base.
