Explore! To the Moon and Beyond was developed through a generous grant from NASA's Education Directorate through their NASA Explorer Institute Program.
Continued support by the Exploration Systems Mission Directorate's Education Program
has made training workshops possible.
To the Moon and Beyond is a special Explore! module. It is connected directly to a current and exciting NASA mission — The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) Mission — that will explore our Moon and gather data to help prepare the way for future lunar expeditions. To the Moon and Beyond was developed through a collaboration between the Lunar and Planetary Institute's (LPI) Department of Education and Public Outreach and the LRO Education and Public Outreach team and LRO scientists and engineers.
