If you were a colonist on the Moon, what would your contribution be to the Lunar Community? Would you bring a thought, product, structure, or service? As NASA's Artemis Mission looks to the next phase of returning humans to the surface to live and work, how will they do that?  Each class member will have a “job” and will collaborate with each other to successfully colonize the Moon!
