Expedition Ares — by Krafft Ehricke

March 23, 2017

We live in the age of fast-flying, far-reaching space ships, and are proud of what human ingenuity has achieved in this field. Research is going on with ultra-fast ships, reaching half the velocity of light and designed as powerful instruments for visiting our neighboring stars. But the adult soon forgets the first stumbling steps of childhood, and the first attempts to reach our nearest cosmic vicinity has almost completely vanished from our memory. Looking back through the centuries, we perceive a chain of heroic deeds which mark man's grasp at other planets. Only 50 years ago, Glenn Wolf's party landed on Pluto. Their flash light photographs showing the men wading through helium pools amidst fantastic structures of frozen gas which tower into the eternal night, belong to the standard equipment of astronomical books today.

The Science and Technology Needed to Colonize Mars (1986)

"Rarely mentioned in news media accounts so far, forces around President Ronald Reagan are now working industriously to elaborate what could be seen by future generations as the crowning achievement of Mr. Reagan's Presidency: the commitment of the United States to establishing a permanent colonization of the planet Mars, 40 years from now."

Lunar Industrialization & Settlement—Birth of Polyglobal Civilization

The great space visionary Krafft A. Ehricke gave this comprehensive presentation on the industrialization and settlement of the Moon at the "Lunar Bases and Space Activities of the 21st Century" conference, held Oct. 29-31, 1984, at the National Academy of Sciences, Washington, DC.



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.]

Continuing our celebration of Krafft Ehricke's 100th birthday this week, we present Lyndon LaRouche's 1988 nationally televised campaign broadcast, The Woman on Mars.
