- establishing an initial infrastructure on the Moon -


The Moon-Mars Analogue Base (MMAB) is ideally positioned to be a large, collaborative effort. Already the Tucson chapter of the National Space Society has formally agreed to be a partner with the project. We have already identified a space advocate - machinist in Tucson who could receive parts designs and construct them. With public events, it is anticipated that local supporters will want to join the Space Development Network (SDN) and provide local volunteer help during on weekend days to progress the base's development. Contact has also been made with the arts department at the local community college.

Many contacts with faculty at the University of Arizona have been made and there is strong interest in student and other collaborative projects once the base has begun to develop. Positive contact has been made with:

The lunar poles require only solar power.
Nuclear power is not necessary for the foreseeable future.
