*** OVER 100 SIGNATURES RECEIVED SO FAR ***
We, the undersigned, urge the establishment of NASA programs for the commercial development of cis-lunar space including:
- cis-lunar transportation
- lunar surface equipment
- harvesting of lunar polar ice
- orbital propellant and servicing depots
- an initial crewed lunar lunar base to support ice harvesting and processing operations
Specifically we urge the establishment of the following programs:
- Commercial Cis-lunar Transportation Service
- Commercial Lunar Surface Operations
- Commercial Cis-lunar Supply Service (lunar and orbital) . - Commercial Lunar Crew
We believe that these programs will:
- serve the needs of NASA
- serve and expand commercial markets
- permanently and economically open up the solar system to human settlement.
We believe that the recent cost-effective and ongoing success of NASA's commercial programs have validated these public-private ventures and so gives good reason to extend this approach so that the Moon becomes included in our economic sphere.
(Please comment about what you do and your thoughts on Lunar COTS)
