From the Paper:

"One approach for a permanent lunar colony advocates such settlements as being early stages in human colonization of the solar system as well as much of interstellar space; indeed, a permanent colony on the Moon has long featured in science fiction but it is now seriously considered by proponents in the United States, Japan and Russia, who foresee a permanent presence of people there within the next decade or two (Lindberg, 2004)."
