Five months after our 1st Moonbase Exercise


Five months after our 1st Moonbase Exercise ended in Utah, what do we do, where do we do it, and just how do we “follow suite?”

New! - Powerpoint Slide Show of Artemis Mission


During our recent Moonbase Simulation exercises at the Mars Desert Research Station in Utah, it was Gerry Williams of Mars Society San Diego who was the voice of CapCom for about half of the two-week mission.

Now Gerry has taken a pick of the photos taken during the mission and put together a Powerpoint Slide show.

Help us redesign the Moon Society Website

Three years ago, member John Schrock led an effort to redesign the Moon Society front page at

It was a welcome improvement.

In the past year and a half, we have added more menu options and features. But whether it is a matter of layout, color, or content, "what's new" doesn't jump out at the casual visitor. We have had a problem changing the "changing picture" regularly and that has not helped.

Artemis Moonbase Sim 1 (MDRS Crew 45)
February 26-March 11, 2006

First, deep apologies from all of us on the Artemis Moonbase Sim 1 Crew. We got this blog up and running with every intention of submitting personalized reports all throughout the mission. And that didn’t happen.


Welcome to the Moon Society Blog!

The first main event that will be covered will be for Artemis Moonbase Simulation One. The Artemis Moonbase Simulation will be running from February 25th, 2006 - March 13th, 2006 and we will be posting daily updates on this blog during the mission and pre-launch updates as they happen.

After the simulation is complete we're looking forward to postings from crew members describing events from a more personel point of view.
