MAKING THE MOON PAY
Ramin Khadem, a veteran of the telecom satellite industry, thinks there’s definitely money to be made on the moon. That’s not surprising: As chairman of Odyssey Moon Limited, he’s in charge of one of the ventures planning to deliver commercial payloads to the moon – not 40 years from now, but sometime in the next five years.
“The moon is almost like an eighth continent,” said Khadem. “It’s within the planet Earth’s own economic sphere … Our approach has been to explore this eighth continent. Just as explorers went to the new world and found all sorts of great things, we think there are opportunities there.”
