Lunar Outpost is a lunar expedition to the dark side of the Moon, that is scheduled by MoonEx to take place by 2020. Its purpose is to enable the first commercial presence and exploration of the lunar South Pole. MoonEx states that the poles of the Moon have concentrations of water and other valuable resources, as well as “peaks of eternal light” where nearly continuous sunshine and direct communication with Earth are possible. The primary goal for this mission is to set up the first lunar research outpost, prospect for water and useful minerals, and accommodate a variety of research instruments for the expedition partners of MoonEx.[1]
