Instruments, Observations, and Opportunities at the Lunar Poles

The single most important discovery in Lunar science is the confirmation of icy volatiles at the Lunar poles. This not only makes the Moon an exciting destination in its own right, but the Lunar poles are a Rosetta Stone for cryogenic chemistry and physics throughout the solar system and beyond.
