Tales about the existence of a land on the Moon turned out to be a myth. When the first time set foot on the Moon on July 21, 1969, human ensure that the Earth's satellite was dry. There's no rabbits especially goddesses inhabiting it.
However, with the science and technology almost makes everything possible. Including, to makes the barren Moon as a human habitation.

The European Space Agency (ESA) revealed the plans to build a human base on the Moon. Amazingly, a program called 'Moon Village" will be built with the help of three-dimensional (3D) printing technology. The forward base will help humans to explore the galaxy and the universe.
Not necessarily sent the humans to there. The plan, the robot will be the first landed on the Moon, to prepare the Moon's surface to be inhabited by humans. A number of the base concept designs has also been made.
In the future, the astronauts can use the Moon to explore other celestial bodies like Mars - NASA's main target. Previously, the water was found in the surface of the Red Planet, which further fueled speculation alien presence there.
Kathy Laurini of a NASA scientist optimistic, the ESA's base on the Moon would be a stepping stone for astronauts to be sent to Mars.
"ESA's space exploration strategy is to make the Moon as a priority goal, which can be used as a stepping stone for a human to Mars," as she told the SPACE.com, as quoted by News.com.au on Monday, January 4, 2016.
"And talk about the 'Moon Village' generate positive energy in Europe - which plays an important role in the scenario of human exploration of the universe," added Laurini.
"3D printing technology can be used to produce an overall structure," said Laurent Pambaguian, the project leader. "Our industrial team is investigating whether the technology could be used to build habitats on the Moon." *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | NEWS.COM.AU]
