The European Space Agency has claimed its incredible “moon village” will one day allow tourists to stay on the moon.

Johann-Dietrich Wörner, ESA director general, said holidaymakers will be invited to stay in the incredible lunar resort as well as businessmen, scientists and even miners who are likely to be interested in extracting minerals from the moon.
