The Moon Society has set up 10 Project Teams
each tackling a different Project area.
We are building a team for each charged with advancing the goals of
each. Within each area there may be a number of projects with set goals
addressing specific areas.
To help push this multiple front effort forward, James Rogers of the LUNAX - Lunar Experimental Agriculture Team,
secured space on the Houston chapter-run Moon Society Forum
his lead, Peter Kokh secured space on the Moon Society Forum for four
more of our Project Teams and on the three of these with links below,
posted a series of "Discussion Starter Documents." Similar Discussion
Starter Documents will be posted soon for the 4th team.
idea is to attract members and visitors to help brainstorm all of these
areas and to come up with specific concrete projects that will advance
each teams goals. By opening up the process to visitors and friends we
hope to get more brains working in all of these areas, and down the
line, maybe some new members.
Take a look at each of these, and
if you find one or more that catches your interest and imagination, why
not get your feet wet. No obligations involved.
We thank Eric
Bowen of Moon Society Houston for making this Forum available to us!
This is a prime example of how a chapter can set a pace for the Society
as a whole!
January is one of the Editor's
two months off
, allowing time to recharge and renew as
well as rest - his "burnout prevention" break. This policy has been the
rule since year one and has been the principal reason that MMM has been
in continuous publication for over 22 years.
We made use of this break to edit and publish (01-16-2009)
the 19th issue of the
Moon Miners' Manifesto Classics,
one pdf volume per
publication year, this one covering our 19th year, issues #s 181-190. You
can download it here
In each Classics issue you will find all the non-time sensitive
articles from ten monthly issues, reedited, re-illustrated, and
We maintain a three year plus interval between the last Classics
issue and the current MMM issue, to maintain a strong
incentive for joining the Society.
Next month, February, look for MMM #222, and hopefully, for the spring
issue of MMM-India Quarterly.

everywhere, not just in India.
In last month's
Frontlines, we floated the idea of an MMM-Europe Quarterly.
At the present time, this idea is on indefinite hold. It is a great
idea, but more to the point, we'd be spreading ourselves dangerously
