Regarding a desire by NASA to possible find ice near the lunar poles in order to have an in situ source of water for a future moon base, would this be a finite source of this resource that could be exhausted, or could some analogy to a “hydrologic cycle” be established by the manner of natural resource utilization on the moon for ice/water or the other physical resource that would be self-sustaining for a moon base population?  Has any NASA study developed an estimate for the maximum population envisioned for a permanent human outpost on the moon?
