FARSIDE is a mission concept to place a radio array on the farside of the Moon. It would monitor auroral and lightning-generated radio emission from the outer planets and enable the detection of the magnetospheres of habitable exoplanets. FARSIDE would also be a unique seismological observatory through the use of Distributed Acoustic Sensing.
