THE INTERNATIONAL MOONBASE ALLIANCE
is a vanguard of the next great wave of human migration, enabling multinational collaboration to help launch a sustainable human presence on the Moon and beyond.
To Unite Space Agencies, Space Companies, and Humankind to Build Sustainable Settlements on the Moon, Mars, and Beyond.
Humankind will become a multi-planetary species. We must go with humility, respect and aloha. Only with this spirit will we voyage to & settle on the Moon, Mars and beyond.
The International MoonBase Alliance (IMA) is an association comprised of leading scientists, educators, and entrepreneurs from space agencies and industries worldwide to advance the development and implementation of an international base on the Moon.
Our priority is to create an action plan that will culminate with the building of MoonBase prototypes on Earth, followed by a sustainable settlement on the Moon. Building on discussions and recommendations from the Lunar Exploration and Analysis Group (LEAG), the European Lunar Symposium, the International Space Development Conference, the NewSpace Symposium, the International Astronautical Congress (IAC), and other worldwide space forums, we intend to formulate an integrated strategy for establishing a proposed multinational lunar base.
Towards this goal, the IMA hosted a 2017 summit last October on Hawaiʻi’s Big Island and invited leading aerospace, engineering and space industry professionals for a series of conferences focusing on identifying essential resources and technological capabilities required to enable and sustain lunar-based operations. Through the promotion of international collaborations and public-private partnerships, we can reduce costs, enhance benefits, and accelerate timetables for lunar settlements.

MEET THE VISIONARIES
IMA Chairman and Entrepreneur
Henk B. Rogers is a Dutch-born entrepreneur, and a clean energy and space exploration visionary who has dedicated the past decade of his career to the research, development, advocacy, and implementation of renewable energy sources in his adopted home of Hawaiʻi and beyond.
In 2007, Rogers founded the Blue Planet Foundation with its goal to end the world’s dependence on fossil fuels. Blue Planet’s efforts led to Hawaiʻi Governor David Ige signing a bill in 2015 that directed the state’s utilities to solely generate 100-percent of electricity sales from completely renewable sources by 2045. Hawaiʻi became the first state to enact legislation of this kind in the United States. Rogers went on to create Blue Planet Energy Systems and developed Blue Ion, an industry-leading battery technology with proprietary system architecture and energy management software.
Rogers is Chairman of the Pacific International Space Center for Exploration Systems (PISCES). He also owns HI-SEAS, a 1,200 square-foot Mars habitat where six crew members live in Mars-like conditions for up to 12 months to realistically simulate exploration of the Red Planet and help NASA and other space agencies learn from their experiences.
