Abstract

In this paper, we propose a CubeSat mission for mapping Moon remnant magnetic field and discuss various technical aspects and difficulties, such as instrumentation for weak magnetic field measurement, magnetic cleanliness of the CubeSat platform, orbit and orbital maneuvers. The mission would give information about the history of the Moon and possibly help to better plan lunar bases and manned missions.
