TO THE MOON AND BACK – The time has come where industry, government, and other public or private participants will utilize new and innovative communications infrastructure in Lunar/Cislunar space—the large region in the Earth-Moon system beyond geosynchronous (GEO) orbit, including the Moon. This CLE 101 will give participants the basics of Lunar/Cislunar developments and discuss recent deployments of space communications infrastructure, such as 5G wireless connections. The CLE will also discuss global coordination and the growing international law governing Lunar/Cislunar infrastructure today and in the future.
