Virtual Public Lecture on Thursday, September 24

The Apollo Lunar Exploration Program accomplished six successful lunar landings. Each succeeding Apollo mission was characterized by increasing exploration capabilities such as landing accuracy, stay time, EVAs, mobility, experiments, and tools. Dr. Jim Head of Brown University will present a brief review of the Apollo landing sites, surface operations and science return of each mission. He will discuss the rapid transition from achieving a national goal (Apollo 11) to performing scientific expeditions and the science and engineering synergism that helped in understanding the origin and evolution of the Moon. Head will also suggest some potential insights that might be useful for Artemis program planning.
