Crowd-Funded Lunar Mission One Might Happen
on 18 June 2015
Lunar Mission One is creeping slowly toward becoming the first international, privately crowd-funded space effort. With the help of the United Nations—who are currently speaking with the company’s owners—it could become a ground-breaking alternative to slow, government-funded programs that (so far) have been the only way to accrue enough capital to enter outer-space. By relying solely on private investors, companies and the general public for cash, Lunar Mission One can focus on researchers’ objectives by skipping the political agendas that often come with international government funding.
