The Lunar Homesteader’s Survival Guides will be a series of books written to present Lunar Homesteading concepts to the general public. I had originally thought to make these books read as if they were guides for new Homesteaders (like Welcome to Moonbase). However, there are so many things we don’t know that the books would essentially be works of fiction.
- The concept of Lunar Homesteading.
- The dangers and challenges of living permanently on the Moon.
- The advantages of making a life on the Lunar frontier.
- The qualities Homesteaders will need.
- The technology and techniques needed to survive (what we have and what still needs to be researched).
- That they can help make the dream of permanent human Lunar settlements a reality.
- Book 1 – What is Lunar Homesteading?
- Book 2 – Settlement Challenges
- Book 3 – In-Situ Resource Utilization (ISRU)
- Book 4 – Habitats and Shelter
- Book 5 – Energy
- Book 6 – Air
- Book 7 – Water
- Book 8 – Food
- Book 9 – Waste
- Book 10 – Health
- Book 11 – Transportation
- Book 12 – Communication
- Book 13 – Economics
- Book 14 – Security
I’m also considering starting a Kickstarter (or similar) campaign to help me fund the creation of this book. I’ll post links here if that happens.
Let me know what you think. Is there something you would like me to include in the book? Comments and suggestions are welcome.
