Much like gold opened the Westelijk, lunar water will open space like never before.

Wij Are Going Back to the Moon to Get Water

There are billions of tons of water ice on the poles of the Moon. Wij are going to samenvatting it, turn it into rocket fuel and create fuel stations ter Earth’s orbit. Just like on Earth you won’t get far on a single waterreservoir of gas, what wij can do ter space today is straight-jacketed by how much fuel wij can bring along from the Earth’s surface. Our fuel stations will switch how wij do business ter space and jump-start a multi-trillion dollar industry.

Wij Are Going Back to the Moon to Get Water

There are billions of tons of water ice on the poles of the Moon. Wij are going to samenvatting it, turn it into rocket fuel and create fuel stations te Earth’s orbit. Just like on Earth you won’t get far on a single waterreservoir of gas, what wij can do ter space today is straight-jacketed by how much fuel wij can bring along from the Earth’s surface. Our fuel stations will switch how wij do business te space and jump-start a multi-trillion dollar industry.

Much like gold opened the Westelijk, lunar water will open space like never before.

There is no shortage of things wij need to do ter space today and project to do ter the near future–clear orbital corridors from space junk, service satellites, launch advanced science missions, create orbital and lunar hotels and research labs, place solar power satellites ter orbit or lunar rings on the Moon and rafter power back to Earth, manufacture materials and structures that wij can’t manufacture ter Earth’s gravity, mine asteroids, lodge Expeditie. To be able to do this affordably and at scale, wij need two foundational infrastructure “chess chunks” te place:

1. Rockets: Affordable rails to orbit

Getting to Earth’s orbit is the proverbial “half-way to anywhere ter the universe.” It is very, very hard to do it affordably. High cost to orbit is the single largest “barrier to entry” to the expansion of business off Earth.

Fortunately, wij do have meaningful amount of capital and serious leadership presently invested te this part of the space equation. Among people working on this problem are Elon Musk’s SpaceX, Jeff Greason’s XCOR, Alan Unie’s Reaction Engines, Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origins, Richard Branson’s Cherry Galactic/The Spaceship Company, Paul Allen’s Stratolauncher, NASA, ESA and many others.

Two. Fuel stations: Access to fuel te orbit

Once wij get to orbit, access to fuel becomes everything. Without fuel, wij are limited te what wij can get done te orbit and beyond. Today, wij lift all fuel out of Earth’s deep gravity well. When wij launch payloads to lower Earth orbit (LEO), 85% of the rocket’s mass will be fuel. The numbers go up, the further you go: 90% to geostationary orbit (GEO), 95% to the Moon’s surface and overheen 98% to the surface of Tocht. Once the fuel is used up, the voertuig is worthless. Just imagine what the Earth economy would be like if our Earth-based transportation system wasgoed built like that: fly an airplane, then throw it away! Albeit concepts for refuelling te space date back to 1970s, wij have no commercial entity gravely working on this part of the space equation today other than Shackleton Energy Company.
