IamA Founder of Lunar Mission One, a Non-Profit Space Research and Exploration Organization, AMA!
My name is David Iron, I'm one of the founders of Lunar Mission One. We're a non-profit organization planning two upcoming scientific trips to the moon.
For the first trip in 2017 - we'll be hitching a ride with Astrobotic, and we'll be sending a disc-drive filled with images from our #Footsteps campaign, as well as the top-voted image in this /r/pics contest.
In 2024, we'll be conducting more extensive geological science of the moon, determining conditions on the surface for a lunar base, as well as conducting an experiment for lunar astronomy. Additionally, we'll be sending a much larger time capsule to the moon containing the DNA records of millions of humans.
So, ask me anything!
*Edit (3:13PM ET): Hey All - Thanks for all the great questions! It's late here in England, so I need to step away for a bit. I'll be back in the morning to answer more questions! -David
