I want to express my thanks and those of the Lunar Pioneer Research group to Mark Tillotson of the blog Today in Astronomy for his compliments and inspiring attention to our this, our humble Society blog, devoted to all-thing-Lunar.
The Pioneers (http://www.lunarpioneers.com) have associated together since we each shared mutual astonishment at the federal budget of FY 1971. (The Cancellation of Apollo 18, 19 & 20.
We now hope to inspire some renewed focus in those younger than ourselves in "our unfinished business on the Moon." We welcome in fellowship all who share our abiding interest in what we together must learn of the Moon and of ourselves in fulfilling the mere beginning of a compelling vision of the future.
It happens the Pioneers are embarked on a new project that fairly astonishes me in its ambition. I am also of a mind to think they will actually be able to pull it off since they are used to thinking in a long-term manner.
Further, they are often heard to say, "you can do anything, as long as you don't care who get's the credit."
