Technological Building Blocks for Exploration and Industrialization of the Lunar Surface
Time: 16:20 - 17:30
Principal Technologists and Capability Leaders from NASA's Space Technology Mission Directorate will describe the current priorities for the development of technological building blocks to enable infrastructure for the exploration and industrialization of the Lunar surface. Core to this infrastructure is to be an electric power grid, serving human habitation and laboratory facilities, in-situ resource utilization (ISRU) plants, construction activities, and space transportation assets. This power grid may enable the expansion of exploration and industrial activity from the Lunar pole toward the equator.
