Re: NASA's Moon Mission

The plan for the creation of the CEV and of its exploration vision use took some interesting topics into what was use to produce what has become known as Apollo on steriods.

page 4 of 156 lunar Architecture

Each architecture study emphasized one or more critical aspects of human exploration in order to determine basic feasibility and technology needs. Example architectural areas of emphasis include:

• Destination: Moon ↔ Mars ↔ Libration Points ↔ Asteroids;
• System Reusability: Expendable ↔ Reusable;
• Architecture Focus: Sorties ↔ Colonization;
• Surface Mobility: Local ↔ Global;
• Launch Vehicles: Existing ↔ New Heavy Lift;
• Transportation: Numerous stages and technologies traded;
• LEO Assembly: None ↔ Extensive;
• Transit Modes: Zero-gravity ↔ Artificial-gravity;
• Surface Power: Solar ↔ Nuclear;
• Crew Size: 4 ↔ 24; and
• ISRU: None ↔ Extensive.

NASA closing in on naming new fleet

Sources have revealed the latest list of the names NASA has given to its new fleet, with a Greek goddess, a Roman mythological god, and a near-by star winning through as the identities of the new ships that will send America back to the moon and on to Mars.
In the next decade, Altair, Artemis and Ares (I and V) could well become space community household names, as NASA returns to exploration past our own orbit.

Re: NASA's Moon Mission

Here is rthe Russian take on the Moon, Mars mining 'a must' - Sevastiyanov

The flamboyant - yet influential - president is under no illusions about the 2012-2014 timeline it would take for his company to support Russia’s first manned mission to the Moon, including the mining of isotope helium-3 by 2020.

'We could make a landing as early as 2012-2014 using the Soyuz-type technology,' said Sevastiyanov, in a wide-ranging interview with Vedomosti magazine.

'With a budget within $2 billion, we could land on the Moon in three missions.

'The first would be just a lunar fly-around mission, the second would involve a circumlunar orbit injection with automatic landing of the lunar module, and the third would be the manned landing on the Moon.

Thanks for that, but some of those Russians say lot's of stuff - they said Energia would take 'em to Mars but where are they now ?

Re: NASA's Moon Mission

Moon bases being planned now may show us how to live off-planet

Moon bases being planned now may show us how to live off-planet; Half a century after the last humans walked on the lunar surface, the moon is looking ripe for a new round of exploration and development.  President Trump has ordered NASA to plan a return.
