The Resources page is where I’m parking all the links to websites, books, etc. that contain information about Luna that I either use regularly. Individual resources (like papers) that I have actually used are linked at the bottom of the relevant article.
Lunarpedia (www.lunarpedia.org) – Maintained by the Moon Society. It’s kind of bare but it has great potential. I’m a member and actively working on making Lunarpeda the definitive place to find Lunar information.
Lunar Sourcebook (www.lpi.usra.edu/publications/books/lunar_sourcebook) – The first place I look for Lunar information. It may be a little old but it’s still the most the best source for Apollo data.
Handbook of Lunar Materials (ntrs.nasa.gov/search.jsp?R=19800007749) – Another great resource for Lunar geology.
Geologic History of the Moon (ser.sese.asu.edu/GHM) – THE resource for how Lunar geological (selenological) features formed.
A Global Lunar Landing Site Study to Provide the Scientific Context for Exploration of the Moon (www.lpi.usra.edu/exploration/CLSE-landing-site-study/) – Lots of good information about what we know, and don’t know, about Luna.
Space Resources: Vol 3 Materials (www.lpi.usra.edu/lunar/strategies/SP509-3-Materials.pdf) – This book is my new best friend when it comes to moving and processing Lunar regolith.
The Lunar Regolith (ntrs.nasa.gov/archive/nasa/casi.ntrs.nasa.gov/20090026015.pdf) – A nice little document with lots of information on….wait for it….Lunar regolith.
Lunar Stratigraphy and Sedimentology (www.lpi.usra.edu/publications/books/lunar_stratigraphy/) – A little old (1976) but full of information that is still relevant.
Extraterrestrial Materials Processing and Construction (ntrs.nasa.gov/archive/nasa/casi.ntrs.nasa.gov/19830003839.pdf) – This book is awesome. So much good information. This will be my go-to book when I get to phase 4 and 5.
International Deep Space Standards (https://www.internationaldeepspacestandards.com/) – Standardizing spacecraft equipment is GOOD idea and at the core of Lunar Homesteading. It’s good to see some progress being made.
NASA Curation: Lunar (curator.jsc.nasa.gov/lunar) – Everything NASA has on the Lunar samples they collected.
Handbook of Lunar Soils (curator.jsc.nasa.gov/lunar/catalogs/other/lunar_soils_catalog.pdf)
The Lunar Sample Compendium (curator.jsc.nasa.gov/lunar/lsc/index.cfm)
Lunar Sample Database (curator.jsc.nasa.gov/lunar/index.cfm#)
Lunar and Planetary Institute – Lunar Samples (www.lpi.usra.edu/lunar/samples) – Contains much of the same information as NASA Curation: Lunar
A LOT of old papers regarding Apollo samples – (curator.jsc.nasa.gov/lunar/lsc/lscref45.pdf)
Lunar images, data sets, and maps
NASA Image Gallery (www.nasa.gov/multimedia/imagegallery/index.html)
Lunar and Planetary Institute -Lunar Images (www.lpi.usra.edu/lunar/lunar_images)
Lunar map catalog (www.lpi.usra.edu/resources/mapcatalog/)
Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (www.lroc.asu.edu/)
Lunar Web Mapping Application (webgis2.wr.usgs.gov/Lunar_Global_GIS/)
Map-a-planet Explorer: Moon (www.mapaplanet.org/explorer/moon.html)
Moon Zoo crater data (data.moonzoo.org/) – I don’t know how useful this data will be but I hate the idea of duplicating someone else’s effort.
