Towards the Moon Village Generation
The Moon Village Generation is the generation born into a world where humans have a continuous collaborative presence on the Moon! To this end, the Moon Village Association has formed the Towards the Moon Generation Project, a project focused on engaging students and young professionals on topics relating to the future of lunar exploration and the Moon Village.
“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.” ― Carl Sagan
The Towards a Moon Village Generation (TMVG) Working Group aims to open the doors to ongoing activities within the MVA to ensure horizontal collaboration across all the amazing projects and to also bring that information forward to the world, not just to Partner Organizations but also to the general public and specifically the student and young professionals demographic.
About the Working Group
The current working group is a small team of individuals dedicated to researching and sharing knowledge both within the Moon Village Association and taking it all to the public as well. The Working Group includes and involves individuals from various backgrounds, levels of experience and interests and regular discussions across a wide range of topics related to the scientific, economic and legal aspects of Lunar missions, mainly on how to communicate them to various audience groups. The core motto of the group is the acknowledgement that we are all lifelong learners who have a passion to communicate and increase transparency to shorten the knowledge gap. We have a lot of interesting projects and competitions coming up along with our general and consistent efforts to create and post educational and informative material on various social media platforms and our Knowledge Database.
MVA Hackathon 2022
Picture the year 2045, the first human settlement on the Moon is on its way to create a home away from home. What are the likely geographies, places and locations for humans to call home our Moon? What is the makeup of the crew who buildup a lunar settlement? How will such a settlement evolve over time? Who will make it economically viable? What lunar resources might make our Moon valuable to our species? How much autonomy for Moon dwellers? What might lunar governance look like? What does the Earth-Moon Space highway look like? Do all rockets land on the surface in Moonports? Are Moonport/(s) operating in Lunar Orbit? How is the traffic being monitored, regulated and sustained? What other facilities might we encounter in cislunar and orbiting regimes? Crew safety is a prime concern. Crew are our most precious and fragile resource. Propose some ways to communicate and keep them safe in case of emergency or anomaly. Also consider ways to rescue and return them safely back to Earth, if the need arises.
These are a few questions we need to consider to create the future we’d like to see. But in order to approach this mammoth design challenge, it is important to ask the right questions, think logically, think fast and find the core challenge/solution! And this is what the MVA Hackathon 2022 for MOONPORT-1 is all about!
We wrapped up the Moonport-1 Hackathon and would like to keep the challenge open for future hackathons to allow teams to work on it longer and present more diverse designs!
So if you are interested in networking and learning from our design teams, join our slack workspace. For more information about MVA Hackathons, the formats, past and future challenges and much more, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
An initiative to collect a library of creative projects all related to the Moon and it’s exploration. This provides everyone an opportunity to get acquainted with the creative side of Lunar Exploration; it’s concept, the development and what it represents to humankind.
