Other Considerations

Other Considerations

What science can we do? Depending on where we go, we can learn different things about how the Moon formed and has changed. We can set up telescopes

to monitor Earth

or to look deep

into space.

Slide 23

The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Mission

The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Mission

LRO spacecraft launched on June 18, 2009

It will orbit the Moon, collecting data to:

Characterize solar radiation on the lunar surface and how it might impact humans and materials

Make a high resolution global, 3-D map of the Moon’s surface so we can select landing sites

Make very detailed maps of the Moon’s resources and the Moon’s polar regions to see if water ice is present.

Slide 26

Mission: Moon!

Mission: Moon!

Just like NASA teams of scientists and engineers, you and your team will propose a site for a future lunar outpost and debate why it should be chosen.

Your Mission:

Review the data for the different possible lunar outpost sites

Select the site that has the fewest risks and most benefits in your view
