"The Moon Shines on all the Earth..."
The Open Luna Foundation aims to return mankind to the moon through private enterprise. Initial goals focus on a stepped program of robotic missions coupled with extensive public relations and outreach. Following these purely robotic missions, a short series of crewed missions will construct a small, approximately 6 - 10 person outpost based on a location scouted by the robotic missions. This outpost will be open for anyone's use (private individuals to government agencies), provided they respect our ethical conduct and cultural heritage policies.

Your Moon. Your mission. Get involved.
Please look at the People needed list. We certainly can use your help, because this is your mission... Not NASA, Not CSA, no big corporation, YOURS.
For more general discussion or question asking, look in the discussion page first. You should also read all of the existing pages before starting any new ones. (Start with Mission_Plan) You should also look in the discussion pages before editing anything. (Edit with care. Read the Equipment design standards, editing protocols, the discussion pages for your topic and the Mission_Plan before editing anything.)
You should also note that we are breaking out some individual components here.
We are starting to break out a series of projects here. This is a quick list if you are looking for any kind of project ranging from simple weekend hobby projects, to senior design projects, to major development and construction projects. These are hardware, scientific, and even marketing and PR projects.
OL Science Team if you have relevant expertise & would like to participate in future meetings, contact us. Archive meeting notes are posted here: OpenLuna Science.
Proposal to Modify the OpenLuna Wiki
For the proposal, please follow this link: Proposal to Modify the Wiki.
This is a proposal to completely reorganize the wiki for better access and navigation. Several suggestions are made including the use of portals for different functional area, how to design tasks and how to organize the OpenLuna members. All members are encouraged to read this proposal and discuss its benefits and weaknesses in the discussion page. Also, feel free to correct any wrong or misleading information under 'Functional Areas and Wiki Portals'. Coordination in migrating all pages to new portals is essential in order to maintain a smooth use of this site and avoid any loss or duplications of pages.
Be aware that your entries are being watched by Administrators and Moderators, and may be modified at any time. If you feel this was done in error, please see our Privacy page and, or Disclaimers page before contacting the editor.
Editor/contributors should also be sure to 'Watch' your pages, to see if anyone responds, enhances, or detracts from your valuable contributions.
It is important for an open project to have open sources. Published books are good, Open source, or creative commons publications are better. For example, there are tons of open NASA reports. We could have copies here but we just link to the interesting ones instead. Remember, if you buy at Amazon.com, go though us to give a small donation at no cost!
Historically called our Book_List.
