The company envisions the mission as a first step in bringing resources from the Moon back to the Earth.
Test of a novel solar-powered printer yielded a prototype construction brick made from simulated lunar soil.
The history of aluminum-rich basalts in Mare Frigoris may help scientists better understand the evolution of the lunar mantle.
The experiments mimicked cooling of magma at the lunar surface. They found that any water in interior molten rock might have escaped so fast at the surface that none was left to be measured.
Scientists use the gravity signature of the lunar surface to trace the history of impact cratering and its role in the Moon's evolution.
Scientists find a solution to a 200-year-old problem: syncing the prominent bulges on the Moon with our natural satellite's origins.
Researchers use satellite data to characterize the physical properties of the lunar wake and the processes that govern it.
Robotic probes could help us collect samples from the Moon, potentially revealing the origins of our solar system.
Robotic probes—including Ranger VIII, launched 50 years ago this week—paved the way for humankind’s giant leap to the Moon. This history may help guide future plans for lunar exploration.
Scientists zero in on the Moon’s South Pole to create more accurate models of the lunar surface.
