Fall in the northern hemisphere seems to find many of us looking for one last opportunity to enjoy the summer or at least the pleasures of remembering a relaxed summer vacation. Just about every possible human ailment has got a group doing walks, runs and swims to raise money. Being healthy is certainly vital to our every day lives. But, what will we do when we have most of our ailments under control. Do we simply sit in front of an electronic entertainment device? Or can you envision humans exploring the infinite realm of space. Without an end to space, we would always have excitement awaiting around the next solar system. Let’s start by living on the Moon and seeing what that’s like. Then, we’d be ready for the next adventure. Then the next. And the one following.
It’s exciting to see that private enterprise can quickly develop and market space faring capability. Both the United States and China have entrepreneurs advancing technological capability. But, they are still lacking a revenue stream. While they may have a great product, who are their customers? We see governments as being the only ones. And as we all know, governments are fickle. Our Lunar Colony Fund is resolving this. By collecting donations across the globe, we will provide a steady revenue stream to which private entrepreneurs can contract. There are enough like-minded people with enough disposable income to make this happen. Let’s do it.
Keep sending in your ideas for fund raising and your stories of fund raising success. Let’s show the world that we can indeed dream of a better existence.
What were we thinking? Could it be as simple as pouring a bucket of ice water on our heads and we could raise money? Seems like this idea has momentarily captured the imagination of this continent. Can getting to the Moon be as simple as coming up with an imagination-capturing idea. We bet it is. Send us your ideas. How about offering to post the photograph of anyone taking a selfie while the full Moon shines in the background. Can you think of something better? Let’s hear from you!
While we wait here on Earth, we can still keep acquainted with what’s happening about the Moon. The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter keeps on scanning the lunar surface. While it does provide all sorts of great information, it still only teases us with what could be at our hands if we were actually there. Don’t you wish you could see the effects of solar storms upon the lunar soil?
Thanks for the continued support from everyone. Keep asking your friends and colleagues to join our fund by registering. We will keep on sending this monthly newsletter and anyone exciting updates. Of course, we encourage you to become a member and help start humankind’s progress into space.
To think that it was 45 years ago that humans first stepped onto the Moon’s surface. We’ve sent probes to visit so many other features of the solar system and even out past the heliopause. Yet, we’ve returned to complacently stare up at that night-time shining orb and wonder “Will we ever leave this cradle of humanity?” Surely we won’t leave all the fun to the robots. Let’s keep working to get people to be part of future as well.
We at the Lunar Colony Fund undertook a great outreach opportunity at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum. Through it, many more people have joined us to show their support for a space faring future for our species. We have quite a way to go to reach our goal for the first building block on the Moon but we are making steps to get there. Continue to show your support for our venture wherever you can. Don’t forget to keep up with the progress of our fictional colonists. And I look forward to your continued help in gathering support and signing new members.
It’s nice to see that science might be an instigator of peace. Even though there’s been much strife recently between the USA and Russia with regard to the Crimea, the ISS remains a fully supported experiment in the skies. As the astronauts keep saying, from space, they can see no visible borders. With a colony on the Moon, political strife will likely be the least of their concerns so they just might be the catalyst for even deeper peace accords on Earth.
At the Lunar Colony Fund we’ve been receiving more and more queries and offers of support. Let’s keep this progress alive. Continue to network and outreach to anyone interested in establishing a colony of people beyond the Earth’s surface. Have them send us an email; we’re happy to respond to all inquiries.
