Autonomous mining, refining and construction operations on the moon were done by the use of remotely piloted and predominantly autonomous machines.  Mining, refining, stockpiling, and shipping the raw material was entirely performed a system pioneered by the Chinese company, Nutide.  These specialized machines began to build other machines and modest containment structures using assets available within the moon’s regolith.  Extraordinary amounts of available energy and the ubiquitous vacuum of the moon allowed the creation of structural materials by direct and in place plasma deposition.
