Project Horizon was an ambitious 1959 study by the Army Ballistic Missile Agency for the US Army to determine the feasibility of establishing a scientific and military base on the Moon. According to the report, the lunar outpost was to protect potential US interests on the Moon and it considered such topics as lunar base design and construction, the scientific programs that could be performed on the Moon, and the factors involved in traveling to and from the Moon. Project Horizon was cancelled when the responsibility for the American Space Program was transferred to NASA.
