Curious about our research priorities for 2024?
*Join us for a 90 minute event at 0930 Pacific Time on Tuesday December 5th! *
We'll be introducing our 2024 fellows and having an open discussion with two sector experts on how our priorities reflect needs in the Lunar and Space exploration communities.
What are your expectations for our work? What questions or advice would you give our fellows as they embark on this effort?
Join us for a fun and engaging discussion!
Open Lunar is an independent nonprofit organization headquartered in San Francisco, California. We work globally, engaging in programs and activities that help create a preaceful, self-sustaining presence on the Moon.
We focus on contributing to progress and innovation in technical standards, policy and regulation, and shared infrastructure and hardware.
Our projects are sourced in partnership with a global inter-disciplinary professional network and developed through projects that benefit from independent evaluation, coaching and financial support.
Since the beginning of the space era, the Moon has been the benchmark against which measuring the best of humanity’s energies and skills. With over a hundred lunar missions planned by 2030, the ability to ensure a peaceful, safe, sustainable, and prosperous future on the Moon has become one of the top priorities for contemporary space law and policymaking.
Breaking Ground is a lunar resources trust that exists to steward and demonstrate formal and effective institutional management of lunar resources between different stakeholders.
A Lunar Registry designed to encourage global multi-stakeholder participation and representation, based on consensus-building and inclusion, offers a tool to foster openness, trust, transparency, representation and social responsibility for all.
Our work is organized into projects, research and posts. The boxes below link to our most recent published updates from across all of our work areas and communications streams.

With the moon’s infrastructure still in its formative phase, it becomes pivotal to ensure its sustainable growth. Open Lunar envisions exploring the creation of a cooperative landing pad infrastructure governed by transparency and collaboration.
