Dear Fellow Lunar Enthusiasts,

Altruism is a mark of modern civilization. Whether with a ‘simple act of kindness’ like holding a door open for someone or with donating money we show ourselves to be able to think and act beyond personal gratification. Our challenge is to move altruism from the immediate to the future. A lot of medical research gets donations this way, as in ‘help us find the cure to…’. We need to use the same ideal, as in ‘help us to enable a future for humans …’ Let’s use this altruistic nature of humans to enable a future better than what the dinosaurs had.

In some interesting legalese, the United States Federal Aviation Administration has determined that the Moon Express mission is not a jeopardy. This gives us a bit of precedence for a non-government endeavour. Actually there’s been quite a bit of non-government effort with spaceports and the like. So let’s start seeing how we can best use the current infrastructure to establish ourselves on Earth’s Moon.

It’s summertime so let’s us recharge our batteries. We can journey into the natural realm, our place of common heritage, to relax and rejuvenate. We can also go there to think about the future and make plans for putting a colony on the Moon’s surface. Send us your ideas; we’ll fit them into our projection of a space faring civilization.
