Lunar Industrial Initiative 2021
We are launching - In 2021 AEROID is going to the moon!
By 2021 we want to have an automated decentralised machine 2 machine economy initiated on the moon! We know that this is a colossally cosmic task but we also know that it can be achieved!
We want to inspire, promote and motivate a community of ambitious lunar and space admirers to realise the opportunities beyond Earth.
Why the moon?
Returning to the moon has been at the forefront of space programs for decades.
Just 50 years ago mankind was taking leaps with the Apollo missions and inspiring a nation. Most recently, in 2013, China's Yutu rover touched down on the near side of the moon and in January 2019 their Change 'e-4 spacecraft was the first to land on the lunar surface's far side.
HOWEVER, in terms of setting up a sustainable ecosystem on the moon we are still yet to accomplish and succeed.
Setting up an autonomous and decentralised machine 2 machine economy on the moon will allow for lunar operations to be carried out securely, transparently and efficiently. These operations will not only allow for a lunar base to be established where people can work, live and ground before carrying out more distant missions, but also allow for more sophisticated products to be delivered to Earth orbiting facilities.
What industries can exist on the moon?
The lunar surface is rich with raw materials - magnesium, titanium, silicon, iron and aluminium.
Perhaps it's most sought after and valuable resource though is helium 3. The moon contains around one million tonnes of the stable isotope. There is a net supply on Earth of only around 15kg a year.
All nuclear power plants on Earth use nuclear fission reactors, in which uranium nuclei are split, to release energy. Unfortunately, radioactive waste is also released through this process and needs to be safely stored. To stop the unwanted radioactive by product, scientists have been focusing on mastering nuclear fusion. A potential solution to this problem would be using helium 3 and deuterium as the fuels, which would in turn create helium and a proton. This would allow for an optimum situation with virtually no waste and no radiation.
There is enough helium 3 on the moon to power human energy needs for over 10, 000 years!
How is AEROID going to achieve this?
Great Ambition. Sound Technology. Strong community and team.
