This book is unique in that it focuses on research opportunities afforded by a lunar base, an area of interest to persons involved in both life & planetary sciences. The unique aspects of a lunar base will provide scientists with the opportunity to address a wide range of scientific questions & problems, ranging from the utilization of extraterrestrial resources to the long-term effects of reduced gravity. Because of the nature of the subject matter, this book will remain a timely summary of this field for many years to come. The lunar-based laboratory would be highly automated, & multidisciplinary in concept. Depending on the configuration of the laboratory, the laboratory could perform both research & operational functions for the lunar base. The chemical analysis laboratory would serve life sciences & planetary sciences research programs, & in effect it would be a chemical/biological/geological/biomedical analysis laboratory.
