Working Principles for the Luna Project
The Luna Project does not behave like most enterprises. Here follows a short list of
simple rules which participants should follow, to make it work.
- The Luna Project is a voluntary effort. If you see that something needs
doing, do it.
- The Luna Project is a coöperative effort. Find the others who are doing
what you are interested in, and join them. While multiple approaches to a
problem can be useful, duplication of effort is not. The Sections and the
Coördinators exist to facilitate pooling efforts, so that things actually get done.
- Ask : How much money do you really need? It can be easier to get
donations of, e.g., materials or computer time, than to get money and buy it.
- Ask : How much time do you really need? Five years means doing
things rapidly or not at all. If kludging a supersonic wind tunnel will do what you
need, it may be faster than waiting for the good one at Wright-Patterson.
