this may a bit off the wall but bear with me.
i recently read an article that said it was nasa's intention to teather a sattellite to the earth this got me thinking.
it said you would need a building material 100 times stronger than steel they called this substance nano steel.

well to cut to the chase you could turn the light side of the moon into a giant solar cell and with a million miles of cabling teather the earth to the moon.
this sounds extremely wacky but given this cable would be wieghtless in space it might not crumple under its own wieght.
you could gather the materials from the moon so as not to mess up the gravitational pull of the earth.
every thing would be hunky dorry!!!!
i think the only thing that stands in the way would be that somebody actually owns the moon and is selling it off piece by piece.
