Welcome to the Lunar Research
The Lunar Research Institute is a non-profit, tax-exempt
corporation devoted to the exploration and utilization of the
Moon for the benefit of Humankind. LRI's experienced scientific
and its Board
of Directors are dedicated to the continued exploration
of our nearest neighbor, the Moon. LRI had its beginnings with
the innovative mission,
Lunar Prospector, which produced by far the most in-depth scientific
data of the Moon to date. The Lunar Prospector story
is chronicled in a book entitled "Lunar Prospector:
Against All Odds".

Given the importance of the Moon for the future
of humanity, LRI has planned a program to send numerous unmanned
spacecraft to the Moon to further the work started by the Apollo
program and continued by Lunar Prospector. LRI's penultimate goal
is the return of humans to the Moon to establish a permanent lunar
base from which to carry out scientific and commercial activities.
LRI's ultimate goal is the establishment of the first extraterrestrial
lunar colony. LRI’s activities are an integral part of President
Bush’s new Lunar/Mars exploration initiative. Education
is an integral part of LRI's mission and LRI supports lunar education
at all academic levels.
If the USA is going to keep its preeminence in lunar
exploration and utilization, LRI NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT. Since LRI
depends solely on the direct philanthropic support of interested
individuals and corporations your generous support is always needed
and greatly appreciated! Make
