Lunar Exploration Analysis Group
The Lunar Exploration Analysis Group (LEAG) was established in 2004 to support NASA in providing analysis of scientific, technical, commercial, and operational issues in support of lunar exploration objectives and of their implications for lunar architecture planning and activity prioritization. The LEAG is a community-based, interdisciplinary forum. Membership and participation in the LEAG consists of lunar and planetary scientists, life scientists, engineers, technologists, human systems specialists, mission designers, managers, and other professionals drawn from the broad community of academia, industry, government, and the commercial sector. Details of the purpose of LEAG and its constitution and activities can be found under LEAG Terms of Reference.

Terms of Reference for the Analog Objectives for Artemis Specific Action Team
NASA's Planetary Science Division is interested in community-identified data sets that would be of priority for data restoration or preservation. They have requested that each AG reach out to its community to identify such datasets, which will be posted on science.nasa.gov and will be referenced in relevant solicitations. If you know of a data set that would benefit from this, please email Amy Fagan ([email protected]) by close of business on Monday, November 15 to get it on that list.
