Lunar Homestead color logo (Moon with plant enclosing crossed wrench and pick). The plant represents the life we’ll bring to a currently lifeless Moon. The wrench is for the research and inventing that are the primary reasons for Lunar Homestead’s existence. And the pick is because every Lunar settlement (Homestead or other) will need to have a mining component to survive.

“Lunar Settlement for Everyone” has two meanings. First, the Lunar Homestead concept is built on the idea that anyone should be able to settle on the Lunar frontier. Not just the elite government astronauts or paid corporate employees. ANYONE with access to the right technology and techniques should be able to start a Homestead. Second, anyone can contribute to researching and developing Lunar Homestead tech. Research shouldn’t be the exclusive domain of PhD’s, universities, governments, or corporations. Anyone can help us move Lunar settlement forward.
