What’s a space truck going to look like? Hopefully it will b a darn sight different than the trucks speeding down your nearby interstate. Given the lesser concern for gravity and a complete lack of atmosphere then a lunar space truck may be as simple as a converted booster stage of a rocket. Or at least that’s the idea from George Sowers of the United Launch Alliance.

With this ‘truck’ as a dependable transfer vehicle then resources could be extracted from the Moon and delivered to lunar orbit. For use anywhere… maybe back to Earth, maybe on to Earth-Moon Lagrange 1, maybe a trip to Mars, maybe to your own development environment.

This truck could be one useful tool for developing the Moon. Can you think of any other useful tools? Any ready now for use on the Moon? Send us a description and we’ll happily present it.
