About the Moon

This appendix to the Artemis Data Book organizes basic information about the moon. It is the source for scientific data needed for design of the Artemis Project spacecraft and habitats on the moon, as well as the historical record of previous moon flights.

Where practical, we have attempted to parallel the organization of the Lunar sourcebook in this appendix to the Artemis Data Book.

For basic statistics about the moon, see section M.3.1.
