NAVIGATIONAL ENVIRONMENT OF THE MOON

Earl J. McCartney

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: The near-future use of lunar exploring vehicles, and the ultimate landing of exploring man on the lunar surface, present the moon as a new domain for the practice of navigation. We do not here consider such important and provocative questions as: How was the moon formed? Is there life on the moon? How can man survive there? What form of vehicular travel will he employ?
