What is it?

This bill would protect U.S. moon landing sites and associated space junk by making them part of the National Park System. The bill directs the Secretary of the Interior to establish the park through partnership with NASA. How the National Park Service would "build" a park there is unclear, however, as through international agreement, no country claim territory on the moon. 


The bill impacts the moon and potential commute times for some National Park Service employees.


A CBO cost is unfathomable.

Apollo Lunar Landing Legacy Act

Official Title

To establish the Apollo Lunar Landing Sites National Historical Park on the Moon, and for other purposes.

    "The Apollo Lunar Landing Legacy Act will ensure that the scientific data and cultural significance of the Apollo artifacts remains unharmed by future lunar landings. This Act will endow the artifacts as a National Historic Park, thereby asserting unquestioned ownership rights over the Apollo lunar landing artifacts. The legislation will additionally require the Secretary of the Interior to pursue nominating the historic Apollo 11 lunar landing site, where humanity left its first steps on the moon, as a World Heritage Site. The bill builds on the recommendations of the 2011 report, “NASA’s Recommendations to Space-Faring Entities: How to Protect and Preserve the Historic and Scientific Value of U.S. Government Lunar Artifacts.”
