Lunar Sample Return Program Participants
Of course, The Lunar Resources Company
is very interested in this one
if we can put together a viable business plan. If there are no other
companies that will invest in the mission, LRC will manage
Spacecraft and Mission Development
Without taking the courtesy of asking them first, let's assume the
nice folks at LunaCorp,
International Space Enterprises, Carnegie-Mellon
University, Lockheed Martin, and Boeing would be happy to
participate if we can put together a business
plan and raise the capital. We also can reasonably expect that
TransOrbital would be interesting
in developing and flying the spacecraft.
I'll apologize up front to all these companies because this puts them on
the spot -- they'd have to say "no" rather than "yes" -- and plead that
we're only trying to establish the feasibility of the lunar sample return
program at this point.
Sales and Marketing
We don't know as of this point. Does anyone have suggestions?
