Why I Want to Build a MoonBase

Mankind must become a multi planetary species. The Moon is the closest planetary body. We should practice living on the Moon, then go to Mars and beyond. I want to build a Moon Base because I want to make backups of life on Earth.

I'm Passionate About

I'm passionate about ending the use of carbon based fuel, ending war, making a backup of life on Earth and finding out how the Universe ends. I'm into travel, TED, Burning Man, Polynesian Voyaging, photography, table tennis and meeting people.
