Homestead Database

Selenology is the study of Luna’s geology. Well, technically it covers all areas of Lunar study. But that just seems silly to me. Luna is too complex to have everything lumped into one field of study. Anyway, as far as Lunar Homesteading is concerned selenology deals with the composition and processes of the solid material that makes up Luna. Just like geology does for Earth.
