Lunarpedia's sister sites
Lunarpedia's mission is to cover everything we will need to know how to do on Luna (the Earth's moon) to set up self-sustaining bases and colonies, as well as related efforts, designs, and business models that may eventually lead there. Construction is always ongoing and you can help!
