What Might Artemis Astronauts Encounter at the Lunar South Pole?

In-person and online

Join the LPI for a hybrid presentation (in-person and online) by Dr. David Kring, Principal Scientist at the Lunar and Planetary Institute. Artemis III astronauts will land on a fascinatingly cold and rugged terrain in the lunar south polar region. Far different than terrains traversed by Apollo astronauts, the south-polar terrain presents new and exciting scientific opportunities to learn more about the Moon. Dr. Kring will discuss this unique environment and what astronauts may encounter during traverses of this unexplored region.
