Lunar Commercial Communications Workshop - 27 July 2007

Larry Klaes sent me a heads up that there is going to be a workshop here
in Silicon Valley on 27 July 2007.
I think it is worth mentioning to show that folks are trying to find
ways to do worthwhile things on the Moon as soon as possible.

Steve Durst with Space Age Publishing has been promoting going back to
the Moon from the private sector and you have seen the Lunar Conferences
they have helped sponsor before.

Maybe you folks know of activities that are creating an interest in
going to the Moon like, "Why Stanford On the Moon?"

Stanford Alumni Moon Project
�Stanford on the Moon�

Statement of Explanation and Purpose

Steve Durst, founder of Space Age Publishing Company in Palo Alto,
introduced the idea of 'Stanford on the Moon' to the Stanford Class of
1965 during its 35th Class Reunion Panel in October 2000. A 'Stanford on
the Moon exploratory committee', drawn to thinking about the future and
where humanity is going, developed in the following 18 months.
Recognizing the creativity of human beings, the intrinsic need to
explore new horizons and new possibilities, and the fact that we cannot
know just where these explorations will lead and what horizons may
suddenly appear, we see space exploration as a vital part of the future
of humanity.

I didn't make it to Hawaii and probably won't make it over the hill to
Santa Clara, with Army daughter coming out before deployment to Iraq,
but that shouldn't stop you if you are in the area. Nice to know folks
are organizing. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Feel free to let me know what is going on in your part of this Blue
Marble that relates to Adventures In Space.
