Help Wanted for Lunar Sample Return Program

To put the Lunar Sample Return program together, we need to get it organized. That starts with finding the key people to manage the effort. While this initial effort will be done by volunteers, there is of course the opportunty for employment in the resulting commercial enterprise if we decide to go ahead with this program, and the opportunity to set up your own business and execute the plan with as much help as the Artemis Project can provide. Of course, we can't promise employment to anyone. It's a chance to show what you can do and find out if this is really what you want to do.
