Lunar Organizations

This post is simply going to be a list of organizations whose purpose is to study Luna or to return there. For-profit companies will have their own list. I’ll add organizations as I find them. Let me know if there is one I should add.

Organizations I support
  • The Moon Society ( – Currently I’m a member and the Membership Coordinator. We’re a small group with big ideas. And we could use your enthusiasm. I also wrote a post a long time ago.
  • Moon Village Association ( – An international effort to figure out how to construct a Lunar settlement.
  • Lunar Exploration Analysis Group ( – LEAG assists NASA in it’s Lunar exploration objectives. I joined because it’s free but I don’t know how involved LH will be with them.
