Could we ever match the collecting power of a government? They are awesome! They can enforce the submission of taxes from both individuals and corporations. All for the common good. Will people on Earth ever agree to their taxes, their tithes being used for off-world development? Even if it meant a better world on Earth? Or, using other words, who’s leading this parade?
Let’s divide purchasing into two paradigms. One paradigm has a purchase being off-the-shelf. For example when buying a home we can purchase from a land developer and select one of their designs. The other paradigm is to singularly define your purchase, i.e. design your unique home. The former usually is less expensive as development costs get spread across all copies of the same design. The later will have every feature, every characteristic you desire. But the cost is significantly greater. While there aren’t any land developers on the Moon, what’s the best way to choose a home?
Have you checked out our new website? At http://www.lunarcolonyfund.org? We’re adding more data about original equipment manufacturers. If you want your product featured and be identified as supporting lunar development then send us a quick note. We want to hear from you!
If you have the money and want the product then you buy it. If you don’t have the money and still want it then you borrow the money. Like getting a mortgage for a house. But this process only works if people with excess money are willing to lend it to you. Do you know any investor willing to fund infrastructure upon the Moon’s surface?
Maybe it’s because it’s nearing the end of the year but there seems an awful lot of news about space activities. And in returning to the Moon. One would have to look into national budgets to determine how much is real. And one would have to look into a crystal ball to determine if they will remain real in the decades required to bring them to fruition. Are there enough investors willing to wait decades for a return?
Luckily we at the Lunar Colony Fund don’t have a schedule that we have to meet. At least we hope that we don’t. As long as the economy keeps growing then it’s business as usual for us and the rest of the world. That’s the optimist in us as we invest our lives into building a better future for humankind. In space. Join us. It’s the best return that you’ll ever receive.
Let’s try comparing the values of our society. On one side we have a launch of significant material to the Moon for less than $500M. On the other side we have $450M being paid for one painting. Sure the painting might be a da Vinci. But still, should they be so similar in value? What is this preoccupation with the past? wouldn’t there be a greater return on investment if you built infrastructure on the Moon? If you agree then tell us that you agree with this value statement and we can make this forward-looking investment.
Yet there does seem to be some vision into the future. Australia has just created its own space agency and Egypt is looking to make one for itself. It positively warms the cockles of our hearts to see this interest. And it’s nice to see countries like Ecuador putting up home built satellites. While most space agency effort goes into earth observation hopefully there will be an increase in outward facing endeavours.
We at the Lunar Colony Fund do have a distinct, practical vision for the future. We agree that the survival of our species depends upon our ability to live off-Earth. That’s why we remain focused outward, preparing for infrastructure upon the Moon. Join us in making this a reality.
Would you raise if drawing for an inside straight? Or would you walk away from the game? A weather specialist admitted that severe weather events are not getting any more frequent. The change is that humans live almost everywhere. So we can’t escape inclement weather. As we live in more extreme conditions then housing prices go up. Can we afford the most inclement, the price of a house on the Moon? Or do we continue to invest in ways of even better living here on Earth? Maybe it’s not a draw of a card but a necessary symbiosis leading to the future.
So now it’s official. Together NASA and ROSCOMOS will study the development of a lunar gateway. Or at least it’s an agreement to possibly agree to work together in the future. Yes progress is being made. We have exciting things like the Universal Docking Port (UDP). But does it seem like everyone has their own plans and is doing their own thing? Can humanity grow a space capability when cooperation is such a tentative, sensitive ideal?
We at the Lunar Colony Fund have no doubts about ideals. We have a singular goal and we expect that it can only be achieved with the cooperation and support of all humanity. It’s a tall order but we know we can get there. Want to be a part? Contact us and we’ll change this ideal into reality.
