Hi there. Just wanted to let you know I’m still working on this project.
Work on the project today:
- I can start characterizing the regolith and geology now that I’ve decided that we’re going to base our hypothetical Homestead at the Apollo 12 landing site. I started working on that today by creating the Apollo12 Site Regolith Characterization page. Sure, it’s just a blank placeholder page today. I also started gathering resources and information. Monday I’ll update the page with what I have so far. This part of Phase 3 might take some time. There are lots of sources I have to read through and I have to figure out how to put all the information into a useful format. The goal is to be able to locate or create useful Lunar regolith simulants that can be used for the rest of this phase and Phases 4 and 5.
- I also updated the Lunar Iron Project Outline.
