The Lunar Homestead Show was planned as a special exhibit area at ISDC '98 Milwaukee. It's purpose is to illustrate and demonstrate some the technologies by which future pioneers, in an outpost on its way to becoming a settlement, will make themselves at home on the moon, the first Lunans. The emphasis will be on what will be different about lunar homes yet how homelike resourceful Lunans might make them.

We encourage contributions of “poster papers” and “Story Board” displays and or models of your own various conceptions. There are no exhibitor fees or hanging fees for contributions to this exhibit area. Address inquiries about contributing to the Lunar Homestead Show to kokhmmm@aol.com

As conceived, the show will have these features:

Associated Events: Post ISDC Note: Neither of the events below took place for lack of participants

Associated Workshops:

The purpose of the Lunar Homestead Show is to bring to life the concept of "living off the land" and illustrate that it is feasible and realistic to expect pioneers to succeed in making themselves at home, expressing themselves in the media of their environment, just as pioneers on Earth have always succeeded in doing upon moving into new lands.

We can use help from anyone with engineering, artistic, craft, or project management talent. We can use financial help too! There is a lot to do to make the Lunar Homestead Show a success.

If successful, and if sponsors provide continuing support, the Lunar Reclamation Society would like to take the Lunar Homestead Show on the road, to become an ISDC regular or frequent feature.

How YOU CAN CONTRIBUTE to the Lunar Homestead Show.

Post ISDC Note: The Lunar Homestead Exhibit we were actually able to field was much smaller than the one we had dreamed about putting together. Our efforts to farm out various components generally did not work, and locally, we were unable to generate interest until the needed lead time had slipped by. Nonetheless the ISDC '98 Exhibit Room received high marks from attendees, and several "down payments" on the Lunar Homestead Exhibit were built and on display. See items: "Z-vue", Moon Bricks, Moon Manor and Lunar Painting. We hope to add more displays to the Lunar Homestead Exhibit, and take the show on the road to future conferences and other events, but this has not happened.
