CLLARE landing site

From CSTART Wiki

So far no work has been done on selecting the CLLARE landing site. However, some obvious criteria are:

  • To avoid violating our Social Contract we must maintain our distance from previous moon landing sites.
  • To avoid costly orbital inclination changes after lunar capture, the landing site should lie roughly on the plane of our Earth-moon transfer (which may be the Earth's equatorial plane or the Earth-moon orbital plane).
  • The landing site should facilitate a scientifically interesting lunar EVA schedule.
