MegaCon, MegaRocket. The science of going back to the moon

NASA is set to take the next giant leap when it comes to lunar exploration. The agency’s Artemis mission aims to return humans to the moon in the 2020s and scientists are really excited about what we might discover while there. 

And the science doesn’t stop at the moon. NASA plans to take what it learns from a lunar exploration and head even deeper into our solar system by sending more missions to Mars. 

So what can we learn from human missions to the moon? And why are these lunar explorations so important to the future of deep space exploration? From the MegaCon Orlando convention floor, we’ll hear from University of Central Florida physicists and host of the podcast Walkabout the Galaxy Addie Dove and Josh Colwell about the science of lunar exploration.
