The lunar vacuum allows a complete opening of the electromagnetic window and distortion-free measurements at the highest angular resolution, precision and temporal stability. The Moon is perfect for continuous monitoring of the Sun, Solar System targets, and for deep observations of galactic and extragalactic objects. It is unique in-situ laboratory for geophysics, chemistry and exobiology. The Moon gives a unique ground truth for comparative planetology, and for studying the early evolution of the solar system. It contains useful resources and is accessible from Earth for installation, operations maintenance, robotic and human activities. Scientists, engineers and space agencies are assessing the performances and possible scenarios for lunar observatories and laboratories.
