We stand at an unprecedented time in the history of astrophysics. The first direct detection of a gravitational wave (GW) in September 2015 has opened a window into a new spectrum of data and observation and humanity’s return to the Moon promises a whole new era of scientific understanding. Vanderbilt’s Lunar Labs Initiative was started to forge a frontier in space science by revealing secrets of the universe only observable from the lunar surface.
