Current Publication Schedule: January, April, July,
March 30, 2010 - shown above is the masthead of the current quarterly
edition of MMM-India being published for the space community in India.
We have been publishing this Quarterly edition, in pdf format only, with the
download link to be emailed to various organizations and email-lists in
India and elsewhere.
While there is a strong focus on India's space program and India's future in
space, including the Chandrayaan-1 lunar orbiter and proposed future lunar
missions, there is also Indian space news in general, plus a selection of
articles from MMM issues current and past deemed by the editorial board to
be of interest to Indian readers.
India has the largest English-speaking population of any country in the
world. This is a legacy of the long British Raj (rule) prior to India's
independence in I947. India publishes more books in English than any other
country. English is in fact a world language and it belongs as much to India
as it does to speakers in Britain, the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand,
South Africa, and everywhere else that the British Union Jack once ruled:
Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania, Singapore, and more.
India is now a member of the Lunar Exploration Club, along with the USA,
Russia (formerly USSR), China, and Japan. Its former president, Dr. A. P. J.
Abdul Kalam, eloquently sketched India's future in space in an April 12,
2007 address at Boston University on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of
the dawn of the Space Age with the launch of Sputnik 1. See the front page
In Focus editorial in MMM #205, May 2007
In this speech he saw the need for India to turn to Solar Power Satellites
(1) to build with lunar materials, for the energy the country would need to
industrialize if it desired to share the prosperity of the West, and (2) to
desalinize seawater so that India's growing population could have abundant
We released our introductory issue just after Chandrayaan-1 had settled into
its design lunar orbit and had begun its two year science mission, with the
release of its Impact Probe which successfully crashed at the Lunar South
Pole in an attempt to release suspected ice/water vapor in the splashout.
The current editorial staff includes Peter Kokh (editor of Moon Miners'
Manifesto), David A. Dunlop (Society Director of Project Development), and
Madhu Thangavelu (author and educator at the University of Southern
California), and Srinivas Laxman of Mumbai, India.
Our intent has been to circulate this publication freely, so that anyone can
access it. Of course, in each issue, we will advertise Moon Miners'
Manifesto, which will continue to be available only as a Moon Society
The Moon Society has always sought to be an International one, but except
for a handful plus of members in Canada, Mexico, Ireland, the UK, Sweden,
Australia, Chile, and elsewhere, this goal has remained elusive.
