The Extraterrestrial Imperative and Lunar Development

"This paper sets forth key aspects of development of Earth's sister planet-Moon-as the first extraterrestrial world in this solar system. Its genesis is my book, The Seventh Continent: The Industrialization and Settlement of the Moon, which was written during the past ten years. It also considers a philosophy that I began developing in the early 1960s called The Extraterrestrial Imperative." by Krafft Ehricke [See the attached PDF for the paper in its entirety.]
