Since October 2020, Lunar Resources Registry began registering:
‣ Actual Presence: This includes existing areas for Landers and even impact areas. These Registrations are Free, and safety zones of 4km radius / 8km diameter are marked to ensure these areas are not to be interfered with. Some Actual Presence Registrations include Heritage zones, like the manned Apollo Missions, or are potential hazard locations, like scatted debris from impacts of hardware.
‣ Planned Presence: This includes the planned locations for Landers (including space transport and logistics companies) to deliver payloads. This list is updated frequently as Mission concepts change and launch manifests are updated.
These Registrations are Free, and safety zones of 2 km radius / 4 km diameter are marked to ensure these areas are not to be interfered with.
‣ Heritage: Currently include manned Apollo Mission locations, safety zones of 5km radius / 10km diameter are marked to ensure these areas are not to be interfered with.
Below are six Heritage Registrations:
The Lunar Activity Map Public includes Registrations for Actual Landers, Planned Missions, and Heritage Zones.
It is ideal for Educational and Historical use.
As part of the Lunar Resources Registry development, it will be reaching out to policy makers, non-government organisations, and thought leaders to determine:
‣ How the LRR can support their objectives. ‣ Policies and frameworks for sustainable use of Lunar resources. ‣ Processes for Lunar governances, and how they can enhance the LRR. ‣ Locations that should be registered for Heritage, Cultural and Religious reasons e.g. Copernicus Crater.
