Golden Spike is making it possible for countries to send their explorers to the Moon. And with your help, we're going to give people ringside seats!

The lunar frontier beckons. Here's your chance to help-- never before has the public had a direct opportunity to help build a space program like this!

Be part of a Moon program! We’re sending countries and individuals to surface of the Moon before 2020, and we want you to be involved. Check us out at www.goldenspikecompany.com

Who We Are: We're the Golden Spike Company, a private business led by former NASA leaders, space scientists, and space engineers that is going to launch human expeditions to the Moon by 2020. 40 years has been too long, so we’ve decided to change that!



Our manned Moon expeditions will be available to nations, people, and companies around the world. Someone’s got to take the initiative in going back to the Moon---so we are! If you think it’s time for a change, join us.

About This Campaign: We want to generate $240,000 for this campaign--that's $1 for each mile from the Earth to the Moon!

Your contributions will help make this into your Moon program---we want to go the extra mile with great ways to involve the public, and every donation we receive will help that!

They’ll also help us design the cool spacecraft and next-generation spacesuits that we’ll be using on the way back to the Moon.

And, above all, your contributions will show that it’s time for a change---let’s get people exploring the Moon again! And let’s do it together.

Check out some of our perks for ways you can customize our program: help select landing sites, name our test missions, throw your country’s hat in the ring, and more!



Make a contribution today, this campaign closes on April 24th!

Together we can extend our reach—right to the Moon.

ps. Mail us at goldenspikeco@gmail.com when you donate to this campaign and let us know your name, city, and state, and who referred you to donate here. We're giving prizes for the top US state, the top country, and top referrals!
