In-Person and Online Event: What Might Artemis Astronauts Encounter at the Lunar South Pole?
May 11, 2023
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.
This event will be held in person and online on Thursday, June 8. The presentation will begin at 7:30 p.m. CT (8:30 p.m. ET/ 6:30 p.m. MT/ 5:30 p.m. PT). In-person attendees are encouraged to arrive early.
Join us in person at the Lunar and Planetary Institute (3600 Bay Area Blvd, Houston, TX 77058).
For those who are unable to attend in person, the event will be streamed live through the LPI YouTube channel beginning at 7:30 p.m. CT.
