About Moon Miners' Manifesto

MMM is a two decades old tradition that began with issue #1 in December, 1986 as the newsletter of Milwaukee Lunar Reclamation Society L5 (prior to the merger of the former L5 Society and the former National Space Institute.)
Sense in which we use the word "Reclamation"

Read "M" is for "Mole" - The wellspring of inspiration that continues to fuel MMM articles comes from a personal experience that is described in issue #1.

MMM is published ten times a year (except January and July)
MMM's December 2008 issue, #221, marked our 22nd anniversary.
MMM now serves several other participating NSS chapters across the country, as well as the Moon Society, since issue # 90 in November 1995
Circulation is international.
The editor from the beginning has been Peter Kokh [9/2003 photo]

Content & Themes:

Most issues deal with the opening of the Lunar frontier, suggesting how pioneers can make best use of local resources and learn to make themselves at home. Some of the points made will relate specifically to pioneer life in the lunar environment.
But much of what will hold for the Moon, will also hold true for Mars and for space in general. We have one Mars theme issue each year, and occasionally other space destinations are discussed: Space Settlements, Main Belt and near Eath asteroids, Europa (Jupiter), Titan (Saturn), even the cloud tops of Venus and torrid Mercury. We have even had articles on attractive extra-solar destinations.
