Cislunar What is it

Over the last few weeks, there has been more discussion about the establishment of a Cislunar base on the moon and going about it alone.

 

Cislunar what is it?

 

Cislunar is aimed at using moon resources for the exploration of Mars and other planets. It would allow for the creation of new technologies on earth, these technologies not only will provide the necessary tools to utilize the resources of the moon, but provide jobs back on earth.

 

Cislunar could be the stimulus needed to rejuvenate not only a nation's space
program, but its economy as well.

It would create companies and jobs for technologies we haven't even imagined, much like the United States in the 1960s during the Apollo program, where the same occurred resulting in spinoffs that we take for granted today.  

 

One of the biggest problems we must overcome to explore the planets is the need for oxygen and water. If we are able to utilize a planet's resources for this with the new technologies created on earth,  we could establish permanent habits on other planets and start the exploration of the planets; something that we have all dreamed of for years.
and this needs to be done not just as one nation, but as one planet.
