Macroeconomics expects that governments will spend during a recession. By spending they inject money into the economy that expands the work force and increases production and consumption. Presumably a global recession would be just the thing to generate expenditure on a lunar facility as it will require global participation. The last global recession was in 2009 and economic stimulus quickly followed. But even this wasn’t enough for funding a lunar facility. What do governments need to realize that this facility is necessary and is the essential next step in space?
South Korea is still progressing their probe to the lunar surface. Let’s hope that common sense prevails in their part of the world and that they continue the peaceful development and launch for exploration.
Here at the Lunar Colony Fund we are finishing up another fantastic summer in the northern hemisphere. We continue to get the word out that a lunar facility on the Moon’s south pole is the best next thing for people in space. Join us and together we can ensure that this happens.
Can you ever have too much money? some might say, “Yes.” For instance consider the Giving Pledge. A group of people who perhaps realize that pleasure doesn’t come from amassing large amounts of cash. Which they have. So what do they do? They could cure malaria. A noble cause. But what would a few billion healthy people want? Would they want a future? Perhaps the Giving Pledge could enable a future as profound and expansive as a lunar habitation. That’s a goal that would put our specie’s future into a very favourable light. Money well spent on hope as well as health.
And the Google Lunar X Prize has moved its schedule to the right. Yes this is a common occurrence for many projects. But they seem to be the only group that’s bent on putting an entrepreneur onto the lunar surface. Let’s hope their schedule doesn’t slip further.
Our organization, the Lunar Colony Fund, continues to expound upon a future that includes humans traveling beyond Earth. Care to believe in this future? Care to help make it happen? Contact us and we can set a course together.
The fundamental challenge with space flight comes from the vast amount of funds needed to get out of Earth’s gravity well. And the lack of monetary return. Investors won’t see a financial return on their investment. Maybe after a few generations then some financial return may come. But not nearly enough to recover the initial outlay.
However we’re not going to the Moon to get rich. At least not monetarily rich. Even with the Lunar XPrize there’s a good chance that the winner’s $30M will not recovery all their expenses. It’s not the money. We are going there to enrich our civilization. We enrich our knowledge, expand our awareness and contemplate life. That’s a great benefit to our very existence.
The Lunar Colony Fund continues to push for a base upon the Earth’s Moon. There are many that agree that it’s the best destination after the International Space Station. Make your voice heard; join us and let’s continue to grow our civilization’s potential.
If you are just starting out and want to buy a house then you get a mortgage. If you want to start your own small business you get a bank loan. If you want to develop infrastructure for your region you float bonds on the open market. So what do you suggest we use for our lunar infrastructure?
Do you feel like there’s been a pause. It’s as if everyone is saying ,”Where do we go from here?” With latest projections from the UN of 10 billion people on Earth by 2050 then we know that we will most certainly have company wherever we go. That is unless we go up. Up to where no one visits and there’s lots of room to explore and develop. Do we continue to pause or will we take that step?
We’re deep into the summer heat wave in the northern hemisphere. Skies are brilliant blue and people are casually walking about in minimal clothing. The lucky ones can look up into the inky blackness of space. Look to see planets shine or stars twinkle. And occasionally the large great orb of the Moon that beckons us onward. Are you ready to join us in acknowledging the opportunity? Contact us and we’ll show you how.
