The goals of the workshop are to:

  • Evaluate potential lunar surface exploration architectures
  • Define pathways to maximize science and exploration that involve the commercial sector
  • Identify synergies between different stakeholders
  • Identify key precursor activities
  • Assess the mechanisms for developing sustainable surface access
