Space Monkey   The First Space Monkey

Space Monkey is mourning the death of Jerry Pournelle, a great writer with a great vision for the space program.

Let’s establish Dr. Pournelle’s legacy by implementing his plan for a moon colony. He proposed that, instead of working through NASA, the United States government should offer a giant cash reward to any corporation that builds a moon colony. It would produce a moon colony without all the bureaucracy!

We already have lotteries – the government is subsidizing people for not understanding math. Why can’t we subsidize people for helping the human race colonize new worlds?

And then in a few decades, on to Mars!
