Low-frequency radio astronomy from the radio-shielded lunar far side can have a unique science impact on cosmology potentially at modest cost. The permanently shadowed lunar craters may offer advantages for passive cooling of infrared telescopes. This meeting will examine these and other potential uses of the Moon as a platform for astronomical observations and the policy implications.
The schedule of talks and speaker biographies are available below. Speaker abstracts are also available below. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place. Meeting papers have been published in a related issue of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A.
