29. Yeah no problem!

In fact, fuel costs are pretty much the last hurdle for major space expansion. It just costs a ton of money to defeat earth's gravity haha!

That is why innovations like SpaceX's reusable rockets are so important. Getting us into space cheaper is the key.

If we are somehow able to set up a moon base as like a staging area for longer trips, we would only be concerned with the moon's low gravity, and it has a negligent atmosphere. Fun stuff to dream about!
