Consumer Industries on the Moon

We can build a utilitarian outpost, or we can create paradise in the moon. If we want the moon to be a pleasant place to live, we must provide the industrial infrastructure that makes all the goods and services that people use in their day-to-day lives.

Beyond basic food and shelter, people need clothing, entertainment, and transportation. They need to communicate and socialize, and they want to keep themselves in good health. All they while, people need to keep their inviduality -- their freedom and independence.

In this section of the Artemis Data Book we identify the industries we need to support the daily lives of people living in the moon; and we analyze those industries to determine the resources they require, where those resources come from, and the economics of providing those resources to the lunar community's consumer industries.

As with everything in the Artemis Data Book, this is a work in progress. If you would like to help develop plans for the consumer industries in the moon, you'll want to join Artemis Society International and participate in the many teams in the Lunar Development Technical Committee.
