Several countries – including Russia, India, and China – have announced plans for new space launches to the moon. Nearly 50 years after the first moon landing, NASA, along with other nations are now preparing to not only return to the moon, but ultimately launch missions to Mars and beyond.
In this episode, co-host Darrell West is joined by Tom Colvin, a senior policy advisor in the Office of Technology, Policy, and Strategy (OTPS) at NASA. Together, they discuss the implications of new lunar landings for the future of space exploration.
