I'm no cover model...
One of the perks of being named a Leader in Learning by the cable industry is that you usually get a profile in its monthly magazine. This month's issue of Cable in the Classroom magazine features yours truly. They labeled me a 'tech evangelist,' which is true enough.

How can we use the resources that are already on the Moon to make human exploration of the satellite as economical as possible?
If you were transported to the Moon this very instant, you would surely and rapidly die. That's because there's no atmosphere, the surface temperature varies from a roasting 130 degrees Celsius (266 F) to a bone-chilling minus 170 C (minus 274 F). If the lack of air or horrific heat or cold don't kill you then micrometeorite bombardment or solar radiation will. By all accounts, the Moon is not a hospitable place to be.
