Event details

Exploring space and human space flight is closely connected to setting foot on the Moon. This has again made headlines in recent weeks with the ARTEMIS mission lead by NASA. But why bother? Is there any gain in going to the Moon?

This month Dr D Brown (NTU) is giving us an introduction into NASA's ARTEMIS project and its various different stages in his talk Going to the Moon - ARTEMIS. He will also explore the future potential of this mission and the current status including why the recent blast off had to be postponed. Part of his talk will give us some insight into what this has to do with going to Mars, another big step that NASA has set itself.
