Lunar Landing Sites, Past and Future 

September 26, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Talk with Brian Day, Deputy Staff Scientist at NASA’s Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute
Saturday, September 26
7-8 p.m.

Fifty years ago we were in the midst of human exploration of the Moon through the Apollo program. In this presentation, we will look back at each of the Apollo landing sites, why they were chosen, what made these locations so fascinating, and what we learned from them. He will then look ahead to potential future landing sites that were identified during NASA’s Lunar Science for Landed Missions Workshop, and why we are intrigued by these locations.
