Explore Space, Sea and Earth 2.00AJ/16.00AJ Prelab 1: Exploration on the Moon (aka, Killian Court): Mission Planning for EVA and Geology Exploration Lab sessions : Tuesday March 10, 2:30-4pm Thursday March 12, 2:30-4pm Background : “From the time of our birth, our instinct is to explore. To map the lands, we must explore. To chart the seas, we must explore. To make new discoveries, we must explore.” –Neil Armstrong Photo credits : http://www.nasa.gov/centers/ames/images/ ; http://marsrover.nasa.gov/gallery/specialEffects/spirit Images: Prof. Dava Newman Several days ago, a rover sent through the Killian terrain identified various regions of distinct geological formations. Within each region, the rover mapped the locations of several sites where highly interesting geological samples may be collected. In response to this exciting discovery, a team of astronauts and rovers nearby on the surface has been re- directed to the Killian region in order to examine and bring back these samples. Nearing the end of their scheduled surface mission duration, the team has enough resources remaining for roughly 8 hours of work toward exploring Killian before they must return to the lunar module. In response to this change of plans, Mission Control must now develop a strategy to maximize the scientific return from Killian before returning the surface team home safely. 1 Courtesy NASA/JPL-Caltech.
