Hi there. I’m Ben Smith. I’m the Moon Society Treasurer. I also have a hand in most of the Society’s activities. My email is We’re a small organization and you can play a big role in moving us forward.

I’ve been interested in space as long as I can remember. But then I reached the limit of my frustration and took about a decade off. In 2018 I decided that I missed the excitement and challenge of space settlement, so I’ve jumped back in. You can read my bio on my website.

I’m also the Founder of Lunar Homestead ( where I’m working on the tech (both technology and techniques) Lunar settlers will need to thrive. Check Lunar Homestead out if you’ve ever wanted to conduct your own Lunar, or space, settlement research. Or if you’re just interested in space.

Thanks for looking!
