GSO Crew Training Program

The online application process for the GSO Earth Station One (GSO ES-1) crew training programs will be posted soon.

With plans for the 3D printed construction this spring for GSO ES-1, our crew training program will kick off at the beginning of October 2017 with our first internationally selected training crew

Our training curriculum will be quite extensive, six months in length and will teach our future crewmen all aspects of lunar station construction utilizing several lunar regolith or in-situ construction techniques.  Additionally, our GSO crews will learn to develop, maintain and operate power systems, ECLSS, thermal flows, atmospheric controls and all others systems required to live and work in space.  Upon course completion our new, qualified crew members will be able to build operate and maintain our GSO Lunar Station One (GSO LS-1) and prepare the GSO to expand from the lunar surface.
