Don’t forget to join MyMoon next week, September 6 at 1 pm Eastern for a special webcast with Dr. Jake Bleacher from NASA Goddard. Jake is currently in the Arizona desert near the Black Point Lava Flow with the NASA Desert RATS conducting integrated mission simulations to evaluate different conditions that will enable multiple destinations for future human exploration including the Moon, near-Earth asteroids (NEAs), Mars moons, and ultimately the surface of Mars. Jake will join us live from the habitat module as he discuss the hardware and protocols the team is testing and will answer questions about the Desert RATS test and objectives.
Join MyMoon for Jake’s webcast at 1pm Eastern on September 6.
