This study, the third in the space architecture series, focuses on the design of an early stage lunar outpost. The driving assumptions of the scenario are that the base would serve as a research facility and technology test bed for future Mars missions. It will sustain five experimental facilities: Lunar surface mining, construction technology and materials test bed, closed environmental life support system, lunar farside observatory and a human factors and environment-behavior research facility.
