USS is evaluating multiple lunar locations to implement its innovative campaign

1. Marius Hills Pit (14.091 1N, 303.223 1E), 

The Marius Hills are a set of volcanic domes located in Oceanus Procellarum on Earth’s Moon. The domes are thought to have formed from lavas fairly more viscous than those that formed lunar mares. These domes average approximately 200–500 m (660–1,640 ft) in height. The Marius Hills take their name from the nearby 41 km (25 mi) diameter crater Marius.

2. MTP Mare Tranquillitatis Pit (8.335 1N, 33.222 1E), 

Mare Tranquillitatis is a lunar mare that sits within the Tranquillitatis basin on the Moon. The mare material within the basin consists of basalt formed in the intermediate to young age group of the Upper Imbrian epoch. The surrounding mountains are thought to be of the Lower Imbrian epoch, but the actual basin is probably Pre-Nectarian.

3. MIP Mare Ingenii Pit (35.950 1S; 166.057 1E).

Mare Ingenii is one of the few lunar mare features on the far side of the Moon. The mare sits in the Ingenii basin, which is of the Pre-Nectarian epoch, which lies in turn in the outer part of the older and much larger South Pole–Aitken basin. The mare material located in Ingenii and the surrounding craters is of the Upper Imbrian epoch.
