The first steps for the crew of the lunar rover, scheduled for launch in 2020, are underway.
That’s the plan NASA is hoping to achieve on its maiden lunar landing mission.NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter mission will land on the surface of the moon to collect data.
It will then be pulled back up into orbit and used to send a sample back to Earth for analysis.
The mission is part of NASA’s Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE) mission.
The mission is a collaboration between NASA, the European Space Agency, and the Chinese space agency.
NASA is the agency that launched LADEE in 2010.
It was the first spaceflight to reach the moon.
NASA wants to send LADEO-2, or Lunar Atmospherics and Dust Experiment (LACE), back to the lunar surface.
The LACE mission will include a lander, a rover, and a camera that will be used to look back at the moon for samples.
LADECO-2 will use the orbiter’s cameras to look at how the moon’s dust behaves, what kinds of rocks are there, and what is happening in the lunar subsurface.
The rover will collect samples from the surface and then return them to Earth.
This lander will take the lander to the surface.
It’s an interesting concept for a landers because you can get a lot of information from a sample on the moon, NASA said in a statement.
The lander also has an infrared camera to look for signs of liquid water on the lunar crust, which is very promising.
But, for this mission, NASA wants to get it right.
It has a lot to lose, NASA officials said.
That includes the chance to send back samples.NASA hopes to land LADERO-2 on the Moon’s south pole in 2021.
In a press release, NASA says the mission is expected to take about three years and cost $1.2 billion.
LADERO 2 is the first spacecraft designed to explore the Moon for science, NASA scientists said.
The team hopes it will make a difference in how humans explore space and on the other side of the Earth.
