This lecture consists of two parts.
Part I will give an overview of NASA’s “EXPLORE MOONtoMARS” program, celebrate the Apollo program and describe its sister Artemis program that NASA is working on to return astronauts to the lunar surface by 2024, including the first woman and the next man.
Part II will introduce NASA’s Solar System Treks (SST – https://trek.nasa.gov) which is a free resource that contributes to mission planning, science, education and public engagement. SST portals enable engineers, researcher, students and general public to study surface of the Moon, Mars, Vesta, Ceres, Titan, IcyMoons and Mercury as well as a growing number of other worlds. The portals aim to provide interactive and innovation ways to support solar system exploration and planning of future space missions, advance scientific research and discovery, as well as inspire, inform and educate worldwide audience.
