I have been affiliated off-and-on with the Moon Society since 1994, so I'm very happy to see this facet of space utilization getting traction here. I will help where I can!
Outbound - We Live And Work In Space
NASA has put extensive time and effort into documenting their technology roadmaps. I think it would be interesting if we can map each of the sustainable development goals (SDGs) to the related technologies. As we begin this analysis, it can shed light on some important dual-use technology develop...
What you currently see on the network are some initial "seeds": some possible programs and projects. This doesn't mean that they will be the first projects that will necessary be executed. In the next few weeks, we will be annoucning the democratic process involved with selecting the first space ...
Proof of reusable technologies value for space launch is being delivered now. How do we bring real innovation to the front in the face of huge development costs? Our very small venture is getting favorable traffic online with a "paper airplane", but has a big leap to justify funding. Our journ...
Not retiring; not too shy
Today we have "officially" launched Space Decentral: a social network for space and the first mission control center of a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) pow...
There has been extensive work done by Aldrin, Genova, and others on the concept of Mars and lunar cyclers - spacecraft that continuously move between Earth/Mars or Earth/moon. This type of system would potentially be an efficient backbone to support a lunar base. Suggest that this type of approac...

The new book Artemis, by Andy Weir (the author of The Martian) comes out on Nov. 14. It's near-future (2080 or so) techno-thriller set in Artemis, the first and only city on the Moon, owned and managed by the Kenyan Space Corporation (KSC). How the KSC comes to create and run the first col...

This post is to discuss the technology behind an asteroid mining vehicle. Some points to ponder: How will the craft securely attach itself to the asteroid once it gets there? What about movement on the asteroid? What types of tooling is needed to drill into an asteroid of X makeup? ...

Ok so I was riding my 150cc 1987 Honda Elite scooter on the Freeway the other day ;). It was Saturday December 16th 2017 and it was a very windy day 30-40 MPH gusts. I was on the San Rafeal Bridge going, trying, about 55 MPH. I felt like I was in a tornado. This got me thinking, I know there i...
