Our Goals for Lunar Science and Exploration

Brett Denevi (JHU/APL)

NASA has recently announced plans to refocus its attention on the Moon as a cornerstone for Solar System science and exploration. However, similar announcements were made in the not-so-distant past, only to be cancelled before they could come to fruition. What have we learned along the way? And what can we learn from new orbital and landed missions to the Moon? I will present recent highlights in lunar science, the highest priority lunar science goals as determined by the National Research Council, and some of the ways we will seek to answer those questions.
