From the reviews: "Seedhouse ... provides an up-to-date case study on the systems architecture that goes into developing a lunar base. ... The author ... presents an interesting discussion of international cooperation and collaboration. ... the book describes the technological challenges needed to establish a successful lunar outpost. ... The work would interest students and practitioners in the space industry ... . it would be useful for a qualitative design course or for a space systems engineering course. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates, professionals, and general readers." (D. B. Spencer, Choice, Vol. 46 (11), July, 2009) "This book ... present 'a narrative of the key mission architecture elements comprising NASA's plan for returning astronauts to the Moon.' ... anybody who wants a detailed overview of NASA's Constellation program can find it here. What makes the book especially interesting is that it provides more than just a description of the hardware and mission plans to date - it also provides the rationales for how each was arrived at. ... Lunar Outpost describes what is being done in the present." (David Brandt-Erichsen, National Space Society, September, 2009) "The author descibes the Bush administration's Vision for Space Exploration and the Constellation programme architecture and hardware, as well as taking a look at the lunar ambitions of other nations such as China. ... concentrates on establishing a lunar outpost, and what will be involved. Seedhouse is very thorough, covering topics such as environment, life support, communications, navigation, and surface mobility. ... The book is well illustrated throughout, including some colour plates, mostly related to the Constellation designs." (David Maclennan, Liftoff, Issue 257, May-June, 2010)
