NASA/JSC has a requirement to First, develop a lunar database containing relevant scientific and engineering data about the Moon and its environment to be utilized in the development of the hardware and infrastructure associated with NASA’s human lunar exploration systems and architecture through the Constellation Program. Second, collaborate between the Planetary Science Research and Curation scientists at Astromaterials Research and Exploration Science Directorate (ARES) and the outside scientific community to enable future exploration. This critical collaborative effort between ARES and outside research scientists will identify important mission enabling questions and suggest approaches to answer them.
