Transcript CEA Working To Colonize The Moon The master's thesis of three UH graduate students in the Center for experimental Archi- tecture could provide the basis for the colonization of the moon. Sam Ximenes, Jeff Brown and Francis Winisdoeffer, aided by technical guidance from NASA and a computer-aided design, have created a lunar set - tlement model for colonization of the moon beginning in the year 2005. "The strong point of the concept is that it is designed to accomodate population growth," Ximenes said. "It will start out with six people, then grow to 30 people in a tenth of a year, then eventually grow to 160." Project LEAP — Lunar Eco- system Architectural Prototype - got under way last fall as the three began their graduate work. Ximenes said the first semester was devoted to research aid data acquisition. "The second semester we worked on the concept and the design and also took a course on lunar geology," he said. This course was very helpful because it familiarized us with the solar composition and the kind of terrains we were work ing with." The purpose of the lunar base is to have a means of existence on the moon in which research, mining and testing can be done. "But you don't start out on a full-blown scale — you have to go step by step," Ximenes said. This is why the lunar base was developed on the premise of a continually growing unit. The project is presently be ing scaled to a lifesize model that will be displayed this summer at the Museum of Natural History, along with other projects that the CEA has been working on, Ximenes said. "The uniqueness about the project is that it is a real scenario, in that it is an ongoing project for CEA because of its growing capabilities," Ximenes said. — Athena Patelis 225
