Apollo 17 ANGSA Workshop , Houston, Texas
New insights of the Moon from Apollo 17. ANGSA: A Model for Future Exploration of the Moon. The Apollo 17 surface activities, capabilities, training, crew makeup, and operations are an invaluable baseline for future human endeavors on the Moon’s surface during Artemis missions. New analyses of Apollo 17 samples enabled by ANGSA, NASA’s research and analysis funding programs, independent synthesis, and recent orbital and landed missions (e.g., LRO, LADEE, GRAIL, LCROSS, SELENE, Chandraynaan-1, and Chang’e missions) have fundamentally changed many of our concepts for the geology of the TLV as well as the Moon. The goals of this workshop include: - Revisiting the TLV by integrating new geologic and exploration context, new ANGSA sample data, orbital observations, and the full breadth of data sets from all six Apollo landed missions for a fuller understanding of the Moon, the Sun, and the Earth. - Establishing links among multiple generations of lunar scientists and engineers as we prepare for our future on the Moon. - Focusing on scientific and design lessons learned from both Apollo and from ANGSA in preparation for near-term human exploration of the Moon.
