Lunar Nomads vs. Settlers
and what does it take?
This panel, moderated by Lindsay Aitchison, will discuss and debate the technologies, logistics, habitation, and mission impacts and differences between short-term human missions to the lunar surface and a sustainable lunar community with human and robotic assets. Perspectives from government, academia and industry will inform the discussion on how to live, thrive, and use in situ resources on the moon. Panelists will also discuss their vision for a timeline in which a lunar village can be established, and the technologies needed to make it possible.
Kevin Duda (Draper Laboratory), Kan Yang (NASA Goddard Space Flight Center), and Jennifer Miller (NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory)
