NASA and MyMoon have teamed up to blog about everything lunar. Art, literature, music, movies, science, and everything in between!

All quiet on the twitter front.

DESTINATION: MOON OR ASTEROID? PT. 2

The Institute's Dr. Paul Spudis continues his three part series Destination: Moon or Asteroid? This series is about the next destination for humans: revisit the Moon or make our first trip to an asteroid?
Part II: Scientific Considerations
In my last post, I examined some of the operational considerations associated with a human mission to a near Earth asteroid and how it contrasted with the simpler, easier operations of lunar return. Here, I want to consider what we might do at this destination by focusing on the scientific activities and possible return we could expect from such a mission. Some of the operational constraints mentioned in the previous post will impact the scientific return we expect from a human NEO mission. Read more.
