    Paper number



    Mr. Henk Rogers, United States, International MoonBase Alliance


    Dr. Michaela Musilova, Slovak Republic, Slovak Organisation for Space Activities (SOSA)



    On the isolated mountaintop of Mauna Loa on Hawaii Island, HI-SEAS (Hawaii Space Exploration Analog and Simulation) is launching moon simulations to provide astronauts from around the world the opportunity to refine the technologies and processes needed in an actual moon mission.  
    This settlement on Mauna Loa will enable humankind to create solutions that will enable us to live sustainably in space and in a rapidly changing environment on Earth.
    Henk Rogers, owner of the habitat and founder of the International MoonBase Alliance, is determined to use the lessons learned from these moon missions in Hawaii to pave the way for the development of a self-sustaining moon base by 2030 as part of a proposed International Lunar Decade (ILD) from 2020-2030. 
    ILD will provide a flexible temporal framework for coordinating initiatives independently organized by countries, commercial firms, universities, and international organizations that could lead to sustainable research and commercial activities on the moon. Henk will discuss the trials and tribulations of these moon mission simulations, his goals for ILD and what needs to happen to bring about the next giant leap for mankind.
