Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Engineering, Construction, and Operations in Space IV


This paper presents the feasibility of utilizing different construction materials for probable use on the moon. Furthermore, it is to our advantage to use what is available on the moon rather than manufacturing and transporting the construction materials from earth. The addition of sulfur and epoxy resins may solve the unavailability of water on the moon.
