Assessing the Present-Day Impact Flux to the Lunar Surface Via Impact Flash Monitoring and Its Implications for Sustained Lunar Exploration

Near-term, robust investigations of present-day impact flash and flux observations of the lunar surface would greatly benefit efforts to answer a number of important science questions, and more importantly, help quantify hazards that will be encountered by sustained robotic, human, and ultimately habitation endeavors on and below the lunar surface.
