Does the Artemis Project support low-cost access to space?

Absolutely! The primary option for the Artemis Project reference mission is based on use of the Space Shuttle for access to low Earth orbit. This reference mission is being used for determining technical and cost feasibility; but many new launchers currently under development promise dramatically lower launch costs. This in turn increases our chances of success with the project. New launchers could increase the initial profit to stunning proportions both by lowering launch costs and increasing the project's entertainment value.

One of the primary goals of the project is to become a customer for low-cost launchers. If we are successful in exploiting lunar resources, we will help build the space traffic model to cost-effective proportions. One of our major direct goals is to create a market for commercial passenger flights to the moon.
