Accompanying Cover Letter:

TO: International Space Agency Directors;
Political and Media Leaders;
ILC2003 / ILEWG 5 Participants;
Interested Public

Many of the 130+ distinguished and dedicated participants of ILC2003 / ILEWG 5 worked long hours and held at least 4 major discussion sessions to complete the Conference "Hawaii Moon Declaration". It is attached below FYI, and for your Respected Consideration and Support.

Compelling questions rise from the Conference: "What national, international or commercial mission will be first to establish a toe-hold for Lunar Civilization? Where will it be?"
A. Power station / observatory / communications ISRU complex at Malapert Mt, Lunar South Pole
B. Hydrogen "ice-water" survey / assessment at Shackleton Crater, Lunar South Pole
C. Other. Please specify (eg, U2 site between Shackleton and Malapert offers mission functions of A and B with compromise conditions)

NOTE: We'd appreciate receiving your 'A', 'B' or 'C' Preference by e-mail.

Finally, we especially extend thanks and mahalos to all the participants involved in ILC2003 / ILEWG 5. The Conference was a Notable Success, pointing to human lunar presence within the decade, and thankfully, will be succeeded by ILEWG 6 in India 22-26 November 2004, by ILEWG 7 in China or Europe in 2005, and possibly by ILEWG 11 in Hawaii during winter 2009.

Sincerely yours and best wishes,

To The Moon - Aloha.
