Welcome to LUNA Expeditionary,
the Moonbase Wiki
We're collecting information about the upcoming establishment of a permanent outpost on the Moon.
- "We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too." - John F. Kennedy, Speech at Rice University, Houston, Texas (12 September 1962)
- "There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why... I dream of things that never were and ask why not." - Robert F. Kennedy quoting Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw
- "...the goal isn't just scientific exploration... it's also about extending the range of human habitat out from Earth into the solar system as we go forward in time. . . . In the long run a single-planet species will not survive... If we humans want to survive for hundreds of thousands or millions of years, we must ultimately populate other planets. Now, today the technology is such that this is barely conceivable. We're in the infancy of it... I'm talking about that one day, I don't know when that day is, but there will be more human beings who live off the Earth than on it. We may well have people living on the moon. We may have people living on the moons of Jupiter and other planets. We may have people making habitats on asteroids... I know that humans will colonize the solar system and one day go beyond." - Michael D. Griffin, current NASA chief
