A data center on the Moon

A data center could be built on the Moon before the end of the decade as part of an international effort to develop a permanent base on our nearest neighbor.

As part of the wider NASA Artemis Moon program, Italian space agency ASI turned to Thales Alenia Space to study 16 design concepts to support a human presence on the Moon, including a data center.

We caught up with Eleonora Zeminiani, the head of the aerospace company’s Human Exploration New Initiatives division, to learn how a data center will be key to living on the Moon.
