The Landing Base is where gameplay starts and ends during Phase 2 of the MoonBots competition. Each robot must lower the ramp and sucessfully drive onto the lunar surface. Once they have accomplished as many of the science missions as they can in the four minute round they return here for extra points.

Recently the NASA radar aboard India's Chandrayaan-I lunar orbiter found 40 craters with pockets of Water Ice. Water is important to future lunar missions not only for its life sustaining abilities but also because it can be used to generate oxygen. Water Ice is found in both craters on the MoonBots gameboard.

Helium 3 is a non radioactive isotope of helium that is rare on Earth. The moon may have greater quantities of Helium 3 embedded in its surface as a result of being pounded by the solar wind over the last several billion years. Helium 3 is found in six places across the MoonBots gameboard.

This is a larger image of the Landing Base with the elements Helium 3 and Water Ice on top of it. During the game moving these elements back to this base doubles their point value.

The Peak of Eternal Light is where the robots go to survive the lunar night. These are places constantly bathed in sunlight allowing a lunar rover to keep its energy up. Peaks of Eternal Light are near the north pole of the moon.
