Some sort of subterranean moon dwelling

As a child I spent hours designing space stations and moon bases, imagining what it would be like to try and build a colony on another world. I'd use old Usborne books, with exactly these kinds of pictures inside as references.

What's surprising is not that predictions of the future made 50 years ago turned out to be wrong, but how much actually has been achieved in such a short time.

We might not all be living on the moon but the present is still a pretty amazing future.
