Artemis: Enabling Lunar Exploration
Thursday 24 October 2019, 15:30 – 16:30
Location: The Walter E. Washington Convention Center – Grand Ballroom A
This IAC presentation examines the diverse robotic and human landers being developed to perform ground-breaking science, exploration, and commercialization of the lunar frontier. Around the world, space agencies and private enterprises are planning to visit the lunar surface within the next decade. In the near term, robotic landers such as CNSA’s successful Chang’e 4 and NASA’s CLPS program will demonstrate new technologies and survey key regions. Publicizing results will allow new missions to build off the last, paving the way for the first human landings since Apollo 17 in 1972.
