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 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.
