Produktbeschreibung
This successor edition will be lengthened, drawing on the latest satellite data to emphasize the power potential and communications advantages of Malapert Mountain in the South Polar region of the Moon, being the optimum location for the establishment of the first lunar base. It will follow the same theme as THE MOON 1st edition: concepts of space exploration from the Moon and discussions of Earth benefits will be expanded. A colour section depicting graphic images will be added in the 2nd edition and the number of appendices will be reduced. The Moon - Challenge and Benefits of Settlement tells the story of the feasible transformation of the Moon into an inhabited sister planet of the Earth in the coming century. Beginning with small-scale, tele-operated and autonomous robotic in-situ resource utilization (ISRU) projects, electric power, communication, and transportation networks could be manufactured from lunar resources. These infrastructure networks would be field-tested and commissioned in the south polar region of the Moon, and permanent human outposts could then be established. Through several phases of development, the utility networks would grow, and the number of permanently inhabited bases could increase to include all areas of interest on the Moon. The book stresses that the Planet Moon Project would link the technological and cultural expertise of humanity to the virtually limitless resources of space. From that beginning, the people of the Earth could reap substantial benefits from space, and the human species would evolve into a spacefaring civilisation. TOC:Introduction.- Lunar Origins and Physical Features.- Science Opportunities.- Lunar Resources.- The first Lunar Base.- Return of the Humans.- The Planet Moon.- The Spacefaring Age Commences.- Appendices.- Lunar Physical Data.- Oxygen extraction techniques.- Human Factors.

Autorenporträt
Following the Apollo lunar expeditions which culminated in the exploration by the Apollo astronauts on parts of the lunar surface, humankind has not revisited the Moon since 1972. In this 21st Century the resources of humankind are now sufficiently advanced to support the global human exploration and development of the Moon. In this new Millennium several nations, including Japan and China, have stated their intention to develop a lunar base during the first half of this century.

The major themes of the 1st edition of THE MOON - Resources, Future Development and Colonization, a Wiley/Praxis title published in hardback at £34.95 in1999, which has to date sold 1200 plus, remain valid today.

For example, the Moon WILL be the next principal focus of space exploration and development, and the south polar region is increasingly likely as the first site of permanent lunar activities, as the authors predicted. Major events in space that have taken place since the publication of the 1st edition of the Moonbook.

Rezensionen
From the reviews of the second edition:

"This is basically a handbook describing what must be done to return to the moon, build permanent bases, and use them as a springboard for economic development such as mining, as well as to push further into the solar system and beyond. ... This book ... would be a valuable addition to the shelves of technical libraries, particularly those associated with schools of aeronautics, space exploration, or engineering. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals." (C. G. Wood, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (7), 2008)

"The Moon is a broad-scoped treatment of future lunar development, with a lot of technical information in an easy-to-read style. ... this book is an interesting read for all different types of Earth-bound lunar enthusiasts. The book ... briefly covering the formation, characteristics, and historical explorations of the Moon starting with Apollo. ... The book has well-described ideas and illustrations for lunar development concepts. The scope includes discussion of robotics technology and its near-term application to lunar operations." (Gordon Woodcock, National Space Society, September, 2009)
