The National Space Society Awards Committee is very pleased to announce to the NSS community and the larger space community that longtime activist and editor of the Moon Miners’ Manifesto, Peter Kokh, is the winner of the 2009 GERARD K. O’NEILL AWARD FOR SPACE SETTLEMENT ADVOCACY. He joined NSI (one of the two NSS predecessor organizations) in 1974. After joining the L5 Society about 1977, he was the co-founder (in 1986) and is current president of the Lunar Reclamation Society (NSS Chapter) of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He is also currently president of the Moon Society, an NSS affiliate organization. He is the editor and principal writer of the M.M.M., which has been published monthly continuously since December, 1986, and is in its 23rd year of publication. It is now up to issue 222. This is the longest running printed pro-space publication of its type, since most of the other {quot}regional{quot} space newsletters ceased publishing over a decade ago. Peter has also served as Region 6 director on the NSS Board of Directors in 1991-2, and was chair of ISDC ’98, held in Milwaukee. He is currently a member of the NSS Board of Advisors, and maintains an extensive web site for his chapter.
