Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Engineering, Construction, and Operations in Space III
Abstract: Working and living on the Moon requires artificial power sources both to operate equipment and to maintain life. This paper briefly surveys the power sources designed or proposed to support Lunar operations, primarily those for large systems. As an additional criteria to power-to-weight ratios, it examines expandability using lunar materials.
