Decade in Review: The ’00s in Moon Colonization December 31, 2009

Posted by Nick Azer in American History, Base Race, Frontiers.

With a blue moon marking the end of the ’00s and the beginning of the lunar-revolutionary ’10s, it’s time to take a quick look at some of the major events this past decade that took space in new directions, and how moon colonization went from still being a science fiction dream to being as real as the railroad revolution:

While this is just the tip of the iceberg as far as the details, these are the lynchpin events that have propelled the nature of the base race and ‘NewSpace’ movements. With the Google Lunar X PRIZE set to be won by 2012, and numerous companies and international efforts on the cusp of truly integrating the Moon into our daily socio-economic sphere here on Earth, the 00’s will be remembered as the decade that ramped up to what will be one of the most historic decades in mankind’s history: the 2010s.

Check back in a few days, as I look forward to the dramatic changes to space that could be happening in the next 10 years :)
