Lunar University Network for Astrophysics Research (LUNAR)

Jack Burns, Eric Hallman, and Doug Duncan

The NASA Lunar Science Institute at Ames Research Center recently funded 7 new
lunar science centers, three of which are in Boulder. One of these centers, LUNAR, is
dedicated to the study of Astrophysics from the Moon and is headquartered within CASA
at CU. LUNAR has defined four key projects: Gravitational Physics using Lunar Laser
Ranging, Low Frequency Radio Heliophysics, Low Frequency Cosmology, and the
Assessment of Other Potential Astrophysics from the Moon. We will describe these 4
key projects along with an ambitious program of Education and Public Outreach that
involves new Fiske Planetarium shows, teacher workshops, undergraduate classes and
interdisciplinary graduate seminars.
