Document Type: Proceeding Paper

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

Abstract:

Recent work by scientists and engineers at the Johnson Space Center ha led to a better understanding of the requirements and interfaces needed at an initial lunar outpost to enable scientific exploration and research. This paper will discuss the science operations and payloads currently envisioned for an initial lunar outpost so that designers and engineers will have a better understanding of the science requirement and interfaces associated with other outpost systems.
