About the General Meeting Presentation

A new generation of robotic lunar explorers is revolutionizing our understanding of the Moon. We will look ahead to NASA’s upcoming Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE) mission, scheduled to launch in 2013, and explore how amateurs can directly participate in and contribute to the science of these missions.
