Moonbase (disambiguation)for other, similarly-named pages.
The United States had a Moonbase in the 1960s, years before the official Moon landing by Neil Armstrong, using alien technology. It was named after former U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower. It was destroyed by the Sixth Doctor on 23 November 1963. (AUDIO: The Space Race)
Circa the 2050s the Gravitron (a device capable of gravitationally manipulating the tides on Earth and through them its weather) was installed. By the 2070s, it was connected to the Earth by monthly shuttle rocket runs.
In 2070 the base seemed to be struck by a disease. This was in fact a prelude to an attack by Cybermen. The Cybermen wanted to take the base and use the Gravitron to destroy life on Earth, eliminating it as a threat. They failed, and though the normal operations of the Gravitron were briefly disturbed, eventually it resumed normal operations. (TV: The Moonbase)
