NASA astronaut urges human-robot synergy for future moon missions

NASA astronaut John Grunsfeld cited some less than stellar findings during a keynote speech in June at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center (KSC) Visitor Complex, says waiting to integrate science objectives directly into foundational mission hardware prohibits our exploration potential. 

NASA’s Engineering & Safety Center (NESC) sponsored a workshop entitled “Unique Science from the Moon in the Artemis Era.” The three-day long conference focused on the various engineering obstacles associated with utilization of the lunar environment for possible astronomical science experiments as part of NASA’s Artemis missions, like the Lunar Crater Radio Telescope (LCRT), and the challenges faced regarding astronauts’ assembly and maintenance of scientific experiments and spaceflight infrastructure.
