Abstract
Currently a large number of conceptual designs are being offered for the lunar base involving various types of structural materials and equipment for construction or resource recovery. In these endeavors, the effects of the lunar environment are frequently overlooked, and the proof-of-concept tests are conducted in earth atmosphere. The importance of considering lunar environmental aspects must be stressed in planning the lunar base and in developing methods for construction, mining, extraction, and utilization of lunar resources. The general findings in this paper are based on the experience of Apollo astronauts and on Bureau of Mines research results.
