Reaching for the Moon (CNN)



DR. Bob Richards

Moon Express, Inc.

Posted: Jan 7, 2013


“Moon Express co-Founder and CEO Bob Richards explains the big picture of lunar exploration and the importance of the Moon to humanity’s future in a CNN interview.

With the advent of a new era of private space companies working collaboratively with NASA, the Moon is now within the reach of small teams of visionary engineer/explorers. Once only a project for government superpowers, enabling access to the Moon for exploration, research and commerce is now doable by commercial companies backed by private players.

Moon Express is building the modern equivalent of a railway system to the Moon that will enable a new generation of lunar exploration and development activities. “Moon 2.0”, catalysed by the Google Lunar X PRIZE competition, is one of today’s greatest adventures of entrepreneurship, exploration and discovery.

Bob Richards has led the development of many institutions, organizations and companies dedicated to expanding Earth’s economic sphere and creating a multi-planet civilization. Together with co-Founders Naveen Jain and Barney Pell, Moon Express is helping open up a new era of lunar exploration for the benefit of humanity’s future on Earth and in space.” MoonExpressInc
