Hello, this is Charles Radley.
I have been working on lunar development for 40 years.
In 1968 I read about Solar Power Satellites and said ... Yes, this is THE solution. In 1976 I read about Gerard O'Neill so in 1977 I read the High Frontier, and said, yes, finally a plan which makes sense. In the last 30 years I have not heard a better plan, so I am continuing to work on the original O'Neill vision. I joined the original L-5 Society in 1979.
I have an extensive track record in NSS, L-5, AIAA and many other organizations.
The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics made me an Associate Fellow of their prestigious society, primarily because of my contributions in revitalizing their Venture Pacific Section, as well as my professional record.
