As well documented in Dr. Binder's book,
Lunar Prospector: Against All
Odds, NASA abandoned the Moon after the
end of Apollo and has done little to promote Lunar Research over
the past several decades. However, President Bush’s new Lunar/Mars
initiative has opened the door to a new era of Lunar activities.
One of the purposes of the Lunar Prospector Mission and the main
purpose of the Lunar Research Institute is to continue the exploration
of the Moon, both for scientific purposes as well as for it's
future utilization for the benefit of mankind. As proven by the
success of the Lunar Prospector Mission, both Dr. Binder and the
Lunar Research Institute are more than capable of filling the
gap left by NASA.
However, as a non-profit, tax-exempt corporation, LRI depends
solely on the direct philanthropic support
of interested individuals and corporations in order to pursue the
continued exploration of the Moon. Thus, LRI NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT!
Your generous support is needed and greatly appreciated! The funding is solely used for the
analysis and interpretation of lunar data from the Apollo Missions,
Lunar Prospector and all future lunar exploration activities and to
define and to gain support for the future LRI lunar exploration
LRI's activities depend on public and corporate donations.
We are confident that you find our efforts to keep the USA’s preeminence
in lunar exploration and utilization worthy of your support.
