Lecture – Lunar Exploration, A Captivating Science by David Kring
Tuesday, May 24
A compelling case can be made that exploration of the Moon is the shortest and least expensive route to a fundamental change in our understanding of our origins. The capability being developed with NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) and Orion crew vehicle provides the nation with an outstanding opportunity to reinvigorate its space program beyond low-Earth orbit. A decade-long series of studies have identified the best landing sites and traverse routes to maximize scientific return in missions that could be conducted throughout the 2020s. The lunar farside and specifically the Schrödinger impact basin is the highest priority target.
