About the Moon Village Analogue Working Group

The Moon Village Analogue Working Group provides a forum for identifying and coordinating activities related to terrestrial analogues for the Moon Village. It also addresses the associated topic of the use of the Moon as an analogue/testbed for future exploration of Mars and other destinations.  Subgroups may be created to investigate specific topics such as Human Interface.  The Working Group can support the creation of Analogues around the world as a tool to contribute to capacity building in space developing countries and in general as outreach to the public.

The Working Group will liase with all the existing Moon Village Association working groups.

What are we looking for?

Do you want to help in humanity’s exploration and settlement of the Moon? This is not a task for the faint-hearted or work-shy! We need volunteers willing to roll up their sleeves and do the necessary hard grind to bring this information together, reach out to their networks and propose/implement specific actions.

The working group is seeking experts in earth analogue as well as in disciplines that are using analogues for scientific and engineering investigations. That is from industry, university, research centers some of which might well be non-space companies, who are working towards preparing future lunar missions.
