Lunar Homestead is creating Lunar settlement research
0

patrons

Lunar Homestead is researching the technology and techniques we'll need to create sustainable settlements on the Moon (and everywhere else). And you are invited to join the Crew and contribute!

"Lunar Settlement for Everyone" and "Join YOUR Space Program" are not just slogans. Space research and exploration have been the domain of governments and corporations for a very long time. All the rest of us could do is just watch. And maybe try to convince disinterested politicians to do more.

We (you and I) are going to change that. There are problems that need solutions and technology that needs to be "on-the-shelf" before the first settler leaves for Luna (or anywhere else). You don't have to be a scientist to conduct meaningful research. You don't even need a lab or a workshop. All you really need is curiosity. Access to the Internet helps.

Together we can move our collective knowledge forward to the point where permanent off-Earth settlements are realistically possible.

Join the Lunar Homestead Crew and get personally involved in space settlement research.

  • Conduct research projects designed and run by Lunar Homestead.
  • Help in the creation of future research projects
  • Assist others in their research efforts (including LH's Principal Investigator's research).
  • Become part of a community passionate about space settlement research.
  • Conduct your own research into topics that interest you. Lunar Homestead will help!
  • Contribute to defining, refining, and spreading the Lunar Homestead concept.
  • Support grassroots Lunar and space settlement research.

Please check out the Lunar Homestead "About LH" page for more information.
Thanks for looking!
P.S. - Let me know if there is a particular reward you're interested in. I may agree with you and add it in the future. I'm currently considering adding podcasts to the mix, with rewards centered around them. I don't want to take too much time and effort away from the research though.

There is a lot we need to figure out before humans can safely live on the Moon. At this level you can start your own research project and advance human knowledge. The universe doesn't care if you have a PhD or not. It only gives up it's secrets to the stubbornly curious.

You're ready and willing to create a civilization from the Lunar frontier. You're bold. You're brave. You're highly adaptable. You're a pioneer and we need you to help make the Lunar Homesteads a reality.


Thank you for supporting independent space settlement research. 


Benefits:

  • I had some good benefit ideas for patrons at this level. But they would all require time to fulfill. Time that could be used to conduct research, create research projects, and help others conduct research. I'd rather focus on our mission.
  • No existing exclusive Discord channel but I'd be happy to create one if you wanted it.
  • Let me know if there is a particular benefit you would like have at this level. Reasonable requests will be deliberated.
  • I threw this one in just in case someone REALLY wanted to support LH and had money burning a hole in their pocket.
  • And everything from the previous funding levels!

When Lunar Homestead reaches 25 patrons, I'll start introducing regular podcasts (with appropriate rewards) to the mix. I'd like to know that there is enough of an interest in what I'm doing to warrant the extra time. effort, and expense.

Plus, this level of support will help cover some of the LH operating costs (web hosting, research expenses, etc)

(I didn't use a monetary goal because money is secondary to creating the community we're going to need to make space settlement actually happen. Money is still important though!)
