Lunar Living: The Sunday Times Bestseller
About this deal
Gateway will be higher up, in an oval-shaped path around the Moon called a Near Rectilinear Halo Orbit (NRHO), giving Nasa the ability to land wherever it wants. The Sun on the cusp of Cancer is moving out of the square to Neptune in Pisces. Great time to journal for the next few months, so that we can reflect on current events with more clarity.
John Shannon believes things are now looking up. “We’ve been through the hard part: the qualification and design of the hardware,” he says. “We’re at a great point right now, the factory is humming, we’ve got our first vehicle, it will roll out of the door by the end of this year.” We are moving from our "personal/inner influence" signs into our connections with others signs. Cancer's influence tends to focus upon our familial connections. Our personal reputation can be put to the test as family members will expect more from us this month. There are emotional ties and memories connected to this shift that force us to come to terms with our past as we move into our future.The Lunar Lantern outpost consists of habitats, sheds, landing pads, blast walls, and roadways. Landing pads, thought to be one of the first lunar structures, will need to contain and control the supersonic and subsonic dust ejecta created during launch and landing. SEArch+'s design offers multiple strategies for dust mitigation and dust collection in printability, form, and function." To protect these habitats against micrometeoroid strikes and radiation, robots could 3D-print hard outer shells that could sit over the habitats. Lunar “soil”, or regolith, could even be used as the building material. “It’s an easy construction method, and can be done rapidly,” says Philip Metzger.
Crew will return to the lunar surface for the first time this century beginning with the Artemis III mission. From lunar orbit, two astronauts will take the first new ride to the surface of the Moon, landing where no humans have ever been: the lunar South Pole. This is the ideal location for a future base camp given its potential access to ice and other mineral resources.
Scenarios like this are fantasy, for now. But it’s one possible way humans could live and work on the Moon.
Then there are the externally mounted tension cables, which apply compressive stress to the habitats 3D printed walls. The outermost component, the Whipple Shield, is a double shell made up of an interior lattice and external shield panels. This provides protection against ballistic impact from micrometeorites and ejecta (caused by impacts nearby) while also shielding the interior structure from the extreme heat caused by direct exposure to the sun. Kirsty is a sought-after leading voice in lunar wisdom and has shared moon magic on The Chris Evans Breakfast Show and This Morning and been featured in YOU Magazine, Stylist, Red Magazine, Women’s Health, Soul and Spirit Magazine and Natural Health Magazine. The New Moon is the beginning of your lunar journey. This is the time to get clear on what you want to create, manifest, and put into motion in the coming lunar cycle. Use the energies of the new moon to set your dreams, goals and intentions for the lunar month ahead.
She has been sharing the life-changing benefits of yoga and the moon for 13 years through classes, workshops, private and corporate sessions, and has taught over 80 worldwide retreats. She is author of Sunday Times bestselling book Lunar Living and the founder of the online sisterhood Lunar Living, which teaches you how to weave the secret and ancient wisdom of the moon into modern, everyday life. Shannon started to focus on ideas that were viable. “What made a lot of sense was the ability to build a very small crew-tended space station around the Moon,” he says. “Gateway gives you a place for crews to get set up before they go down to the surface. It gives you an opportunity to control remote vehicles on the surface.” It would also act as a safe haven were anything to go wrong during a mission.
