Ensuring Economically Viable Lunar Settlements

Using “NASA’s Plan for Sustained Lunar Exploration and Development” as a starting point, a panel of experts gathered at the ASCENDxCo-Lab on Economically Viable Lunar Settlement on 29 July 2020 to discuss a range of considerations that underlie the U.S. government’s goal of establishing a settlement on the moon as a gateway to further exploration of the solar system. Following the panel, AIAA convened a collaborative workshop among the more than 200 attendees, who represented academic institutions, commercial enterprises, government agencies, and professional societies from around the world. These conversations resulted in the publication of the AIAA proceedings report, “Ensuring Economically Viable Lunar Settlements.”
