GLOBAL NETWORKING FORUM

Ahead of the Curve – How Our Next Steps Fuel the Path to the Moon and Beyond

Friday 5 October 2018, 07:30 – 08:30

Location: Bremen Conference Center – DLR Hall

 

Humanity is moving out into the solar system, starting with a return to the Moon. In this GNF, Lockheed Martin will build on last year’s session which introduced the role of the lunar-orbiting Gateway in preparation for an orbital Mars Base Camp. By using the Gateway as a lunar outpost for deep space exploration, NASA and its international partners are establishing a unique scientific, commercial, and exploration infrastructure which can fuel an Earth/Moon economy and allow humanity to embark on its first mission to the Red Planet. The forum will describe how the collaboration of government and commercial partners lay the foundation for the Moon in preparation for Mars, with a detailed vision for an inner solar system where astronauts and their robotic partners are conducting science, testing deep space systems, and refining operations for long duration missions. Near-term lunar objectives include telerobotic and crewed exploration of the Moon, including resource prospecting to enable a sustainable Earth/Moon economy. In meeting these objectives humans will be living and working in deep space for longer durations than ever before, requiring significant changes in the way we operate in orbit and new capabilities for operating on the lunar surface.  We also explore how today’s activities are establishing the framework for tomorrow’s Earth/Moon economy on the path to Mars, and conclude with commercial steps Lockheed Martin is taking to make this future a reality.
