Exploring Shadows at the South Lunar Pole - Livestream

Join the NASA Night Sky Network on Tuesday, September 19 at 6:00 PM Pacific Time (9:00 PM Eastern) along with Dr. Erwan Mazarico from NASA Goddard Space Flight Center will bring us up to date about NASA’s plans to explore the lunar south pole region.

The lunar south polar region is the target of the Artemis program. It is very different from the equatorial regions explored by Apollo, particularly due to the lighting and thermal conditions. Both permanently shadowed regions and areas of high solar illumination can co-exist in close proximity, presenting challenges and opportunities for robotic and human exploration. Hear from Dr. Mazarico about how the lighting conditions contribute to NASA's plans, and how we plan to explore the lunar south pole region.

Watch the talk here.
