This meeting discussed how 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 examined these and other potential uses of the Moon as a platform for astronomical observations and the policy implications.
