The Moon Society is a space advocacy organization, founded in 2000, and dedicated to promoting large-scale human exploration, research, and settlement of the Moon.

The objectives of the Society are:

Despite being a non-profit organization, the Moon Society has a strong emphasis on lunar mining, tourism, and other commercial activities. It plans to design and implement the first privately-funded and operated lunar base, calling the effort "Artemis Project'.

The Moon Society operates on a basis of educational outreach, friendly cooperation, and collaboration with other space advocacy groups. On May 22, 2005, it became an autonomous affiliate of the National Space Society. Also, the Moon Society has cooperated on a number of fronts with the Mars Society, despite the latter's official and grassroots culture, which tends to view the Moon as a distraction from Mars.

The Moon Society held its first simulation exercise at the Mars Desert Research Station (MDRS) from February 25 to March 12, 2006. Eight researchers conducted projects aimed at learning about human factors issues related to a Moon mission.[1]

Affiliated publication

The Moon Miners' Manifesto which is provided with membership by the Moon Society has covered topics such as fresh space suit concepts, how Lunar everdark craters can prep us for expeditions to the outer Solar system and waypoints between here and destination Moon.[2]
