Possibilities for a Local Lunar Time Standard

The event celebrated the launch of the Timekeeping White Paper which discusses the potential benefits and challenges of establishing a local lunar time standard and its implications for lunar missions, including its compatibility with existing lunar initiatives.

Open Lunar Foundation works to create a peaceful, cooperative, long term human presence on the Moon for the benefit of all life. One of the many programs within the Foundation is our research work conducted at the leading edge of critical questions regarding lunar futures.

This event celebrated the launch of the Timekeeping White Paper, which explores the characteristics of a common reference timing signal to serve future lunar operations. The goal is to identify a low-cost, transparent approach to the development of a Local Lunar Time Standard. The authors, Philip Linden, Samuel Jardine, and Jessy Kate Schingler, presented their research at the event.
