Dr. John Robert Lerner, founder of the International Space
Foundation, will be joining the first true human settlement on a planet
beyond the confines of this Earth. He and a group of pioneering
colonists will be settling permanently at the International Space
Foundation Colony on the northern Border of Mare Imbrium at the Laplace
Promentary. This is a crowning achievement for the Mechanical Engineer
who has given the last twenty-five years of his life supporting this
cause which soon will come to fruition.
Dr. Lerner received his Doctorate in Mechanical Engineering for his
work on long duration regenerative life support systems. A frequent
lecturer at the University of Arizona and founder of the Lunar
Independent Biosphere Research Experiment (LIBRE) whose lunar colony
simulation was used for training all ISF candidate colonization teams.
Concept artwork for “Rob”, drawn by Daniel Fu. Digital ink and paint
by Terry Hancock. This will be included in the first set of posters we
send out (the “Concept Art Posters”). It will also be on the “character
page” on the website (I posted a similar picture earlier, but that was
based on the low-res scans I received earlier — this was made from a
high-res scan of the original sketch).
