Lunar Structures

Haym Benaroya (Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering)

Lunar Structures presents an historic overview of structural concepts for the Moon. While the focus is structural engineering for the Moon, the ancillary but critical topics of human survival on the Moon, the economical foundations of a lunar settlement, how the lunar settlement fits into humanity’s expansion to Mars, and the larger Earth-Moon-Mars system, are all part of this great adventure, and will be touched upon. Students will come away from this class with the knowledge of how this exciting research area may evolve in the next few decades.
