Mars Colonization, Moon Mining, Space Stations, Micro-Satellites etc are the future.
Andy Weir, author of “The Martian”, a realistic tale of survival in space, is about to release his second and highly anticipated novel, “Artemis”.
“Artemis” takes place on the moon in the 2080s at humanity’s first and only lunar city of the same name. It’s a riveting story about a high-stakes lunar heist featuring Jasmine “Jazz” Bashara, a Saudi-born woman and witty smuggler who’s lived inside the aluminum bubbles of Artemis since she was a child.
In Weir’s typical style, the novel - which goes on sale on November 14 - is wildly entertaining and far-fetched, but stays surprisingly believable by leaning heavily on real-life science and engineering.
Elon Musk may be focused primarily on Mars, but he’d also like to see a human outpost on a world much closer to home.
“To really get the public real fired up, I think we’ve got to have a base on the moon,” the billionaire founder and CEO of SpaceX said today (July 19) at the 2017 International Space Station Research and Development (ISSR&D) conference in Washington, D.C.
“Having some permanent presence on another heavenly body, which would be the kind of moon base, and then getting people to Mars and beyond — that’s the continuance of the dream of Apollo that I think people are really looking for,” Musk told NASA ISS program manager Kirk Shireman, who interviewed him onstage at the conference.
