Red Colony founder Alex Moore has been featured in the Pittsburgh City Paper. The weekly paper sponsors a Local Vocal section where a local person with an interesting or unusual hobby is spotlighted for his or her contribution to the community. The article can be found online on the website. Nick Keppler, University of Pittsburgh student and staff writer, wrote the article. Here's a snippet:

While most high school freshmen obsessed over girls, football and MTV, Alex Moore found his passion on another planet. At age 14, the Canonsburg native was inspired by the novel Red Mars, by Kim Stanley Robinson, to launch, a Web site dedicated to the colonization of Mars. With the help of two friends, Moore the built the site into one of the Internetís most comprehensive Mars colonization sites, with 82 articles, some written by NASA scientists, on establishing a home for humanity on the Red Planet. Now a freshman at the University of Pittsburgh, Moore still spends an hour each day updating the site.
