Moon Mark Thought Leadership

Our Motivation

  • Personally committing to bettering worlds and universes
  • Serving the greater good, on Earth and beyond

  • Accepting responsibility for declaring human space habitation and commercialization with peaceful intent

  • Acknowledging that declaring universal peace necessitates solving Earth’s problems

Why The Moon?

With a universe of options, including the need to solve serious problems on Earth, we decided to focus on our Moon for the following reasons:

  • No one owns the Moon
  • Every human has lived with the Moon since birth, creating a strong emotional bond that transcends almost every conflict
  • Lunar commercialization and habitation will occur before Mars and beyond
  • With the dedication to creating Moon Mark solutions that also address our planet’s needs, discoveries in lunar context are easier to transfer into solutions for harsh environments on Earth
