My first knowledge of an analog research station was Arctic Mars
Analog Station Expedition or AMASE. A thought process carried forward
with Flashline Mars Analog Research station or FMARS. The Moon Miners
Manifesto’s India Quarterly expanded on the theme and brought the
subject of a similar station for the Moon in India at the backdrop of
the Chandrayaan series of missions to the Moon.
I became a member of the Moon Society this summer and have begun
planing on what can eventually be a lunar research station in India.
I am still reading through papers and worrying about geting people
on-board before begining the actual effort. I’m also working out a
simultaneous outreach and education effort that will focus on the
Chandrayaan series and serve the project’s basis.
