Return to the moon

Lecture in English

Paul Salazar, Munich Public Observatory

Friday, 3 June 2022, 8 p.m.
at Volkssternwarte (Munich Public Observatory), Rosenheimer Str. 145h, 81671 München

It’s been 50 years since humankind set foot on the Moon, and now there is a great deal of interest in returning to the Moon. The NASA Artemis missions are a series of human-crewed trips to start building a space platform that will orbit the Moon, and a permanently inhabited base on the Moon. This lecture will highlight the Artemis missions and the plan to learn about living on the Moon as a stepping stone to get to Mars, to develop our understanding and experience of how we humans can exist elsewhere in the Solar System.

After the talk and discussion all attendees are welcome to live observations at the rooftop telescopes, if skies are clear.
