Crawford et al.:Meeting report A&G February 2008 Vol. 49 1.9

Summary: Crawford et al.:Meeting report
A&G February 2008 Vol. 49 1.9
Ian Crawford, Mahesh Anand,
Andrew Ball and Katherine
Joy report on a UK community
meeting on lunar exploration,
held at the Open University on 24
and 25 September 2007.
n January 2004, President Bush announced
a new "Vision for Space Exploration", which
has refocused NASA's objectives towards
human and robotic missions to the Moon and
Mars, and the European Space Agency's Aurora
programme has established similar objectives
for Europe. This renewed interest in the Moon
on both sides of the Atlantic, and the emergence
of other space-faring nations interested in the
Moon notably China, India and Japan has
put lunar science firmly back in the limelight
