Back to the moon, scientific videoconference on January 31 | ECHOSCIENCES

Conference Tuesday, January 31, 2023: Back to the Moon! What the lunar space environment can teach us

  • The revival of the Moon as a major goal of NASA’s human program has brought to light questions that the Apollo program failed to answer.
  • For this presentation, we will address some of these issues that our group is actively working on.
  • The origin and location of water on the Moon is thus an interesting problem from a scientific point of view as well as a practical one for future explorers. Surprisingly, it is important to observe water molecules at the height of satellites orbiting the moon to answer this question.
  • The radiative environment also poses a problem: missions extending over a longer period entail more risks for the astronauts. But fortunately, the Orion capsule has been tested with many sensors, which allow us to refine our models.
