The Exploration of the Moon and then onto Mars

by

Dr. James L. Green

NASA Chief Scientist

Scientists believe that the Moon was formed out of a collision between the Earth with a Mars sized planet named Theia at a very early stage of the development of the solar system. From then on, the Earth and the Moon’s evolution have been intertwined. The Moon has kept the Earth’s rotational axis pointing in the same direction providing a significant level of stability for the Earth’s climate. Today, the Moon holds many fascinating mysteries for scientists to explore. Scientifically there has been several stunning advances in lunar science and a realization that going back to the Moon will provide scientists and explorers the opportunity to live to live and work on a planetary surface. NASA’s future plan is to go to the Moon to stay and then onto Mars.

Dr. James L. Green,

Chief Scientist, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), U.S.A.

NASA’s Chief Scientist Jim Green serves as principal adviser to the NASA administrator and other senior officials on agency science programs, strategic planning, science policy, and the evaluation of related investments. Prior to his appointment as the chief scientist, Dr. Green was the director of the Planetary Science Division at NASA Headquarters from August 2006 to April 2018. Under his leadership, he managed the New Horizons spacecraft flyby of Pluto, the Juno spacecraft to Jupiter, and the landing of the Curiosity rover on Mars just to name a few. Jim was also the lead consultant on the movie “The Martian.”

July is the Month for America and Space!

Please Join us in this e-Happy Hour on the historic date of July 20th (Apollo 11 Moon Landing and Vikings Mars Landing) and in the auspicious month of July for American Independence! Share your thoughts about those 2 great events, Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover & Ingenuity Mars Helicopter, where to build the Moon / Mars Bases, Mr. Jeff Bezos’s going into Space on July 20th with Blue Origin’s rocket / vehicle, recent May 22nd flight into Space by Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo and July 11 flight into Space with Sir Richard Branson, SpaceX’s Starship development and Planetary Defense efforts (launching DART for NASA), NASA SOFIA’s (NASA’s Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy) discovery for water on Clavius Crater, the place where the Moon Base in the legendary Sci-Fi movie “2001 Space Odyssey” is designated, the space transporters (like the Eagle in “Space 1999”) with moon bases, and the ongoing NASA Artemis Missions, along with the growing Lunar / Space Economy, Space Tourism, Sci-Fi, and/or life etc. And mostly, relax and enjoy a mid-summer evening with like-minded folks and the AIAA / LA-LV / aerospace communities!

Look forward to your participation and having a fun evening with us!
