Scientific data sets acquired by not only Japanese lunar mission SELENE (Kaguya), but also other countries' missions, have become new standard for lunar science. Analyses of these data have been providing several new knowledge and changing some hypotheses into the truth of the Moon. In concurrence with these studies, some countries including Japan are planning future lunar missions. In this session, we will discuss scientific results based on newly acquired lunar data, strategy for future missions including SLIM, and theoretical and experimental studies for lunar science.
