Luna Project Promotional & Educational Programs
Educating the public concerning the benefits of space development and the
advantages of the lunar strategy, and spreading public awareness of the
Project itself, are vital for the success of the broad-based approach which we
have embraced. This leads us to pursue several different avenues of public
Please note : quantities of most printed materials are available upon
inquiry. Recognizing that printing, particularly colour printing, can be
expensive, we make use of the Publications Fund to have work done in bulk as
appropriate. Donations to the Fund are invited ; by the same token, if you
have incurred printing expenses which you are unable to treat as a donation,
please do not hesitate to contact us
with a request for reimbursement from the Fund.
This publication is intended to help bring the Project and the ideas of
lunar settlement to the attention of the interested public, & to keep them
there. Everyone is invited to redistribute it, whether by handing it out, by
mail, or by passing along the download link. Contributions are invited, &
we mean to publish a new number as often as we have suitable material.

Displays and Table Materials
One useful way of attracting attention to the Project and gaining a
platform for engaging the public is to set up a booth, table, or
poster display at an event such as a science-fiction convention, book
fair, rocketry competition, or movie premiere. The materials below
are intended to assist in the use of this avenue of outreach.
- Luna Project Data Book
- The Data Book is an evolving compilation of materials intended to
provide background on the concept of lunar settlement and responses
to questions of general interest about the Project itself. Due to
size and other issues, source files for the Data Book are not hosted
here, but may be obtained upon
- Display posters Good
for assembling a static display or backdrop. Most are 11×17
inch size, portrait orientation, with one wide margin & one narrow

Luna Project Book Program
The Luna Project Book Program is an outreach effort
intended to spread awareness of the issues related to space
development, as well as increasing the visibility of the Project.
Under the Book Program, Project supporters give away copies of
various books, both fiction and non-fiction, which are selected to
stimulate interest in space colonization and industrialization. These
books are marked with Project information, & distributed so as to
maximize exposure. All the books listed are available as mass-market
paperbacks, which is the format we recommend distributing, and can
generally be found for US$5 or less per copy.
List of Selected Books
f = fiction, nf = non-fiction
- Ben Bova
- The High Road (nf)
- Arthur C. Clarke
- The Exploration of Space (nf)
- Interplanetary Flight (nf)
- The Promise of Space (nf)
- Prelude to Space (f — also published as
Master of Space & The Space Dreamers)
- Robert A. Heinlein
- The Green Hills of Earth (f)
- The Man who Sold the Moon (f)
- T.A. Heppenheimer
- Colonies in Space (nf)
- Gerard K. O'Neill
- The High Frontier (nf)
- G. Harry Stine
- The Space Enterprise (nf)
- Space Power (nf)
- The Third Industrial Revolution (nf)
The first two labels are intended to be placed inside Book Program
give-away books. The third is meant for use in other connexions —
e.g. when putting Heinlein juveniles into a Christmas toy drive, or
trading miscellaneous books for Program books through a swapping service.
Luna Project merchandise has two functions. First, the proceeds help
fund Project outreach activities. Second, the items themselves are
generally of such a kind as to attract attention, & thus spread
awareness of the Project.
Project merchandise is available in-person at events, on eBay, and by
mail (within the United States — use
this printable order form). Prices are listed in US dollars, per each
except where otherwise specified.

Advertising is of great importance in reaching the public. If we wish to
gain public support, we must be visible. While the Project has yet to
mount an advertising campaign, we do have materials which are useful for
anyone who wishes to assist the effort in this manner.
The two items below are suitable for digital printing, but were prepared
as pre-press files. We have sizable quantities of both on hand, printed
using a metallic ink for the gold portion, which are available upon request.
The following images represent the most common sizes for use in Internet
advertising. They are also suitable for forum signatures and the like.
