The Moon, Hot Again

Nearly 40 years after the first human landing there, the Moon is suddenly the place to be again. NASA writer Dauna Coulter has a look at current and future robotic missions by the United States, Russia, China, Japan and India for Cosmos Magazine.

“The future looks bright for lunar science. If all goes to plan, nine satellites could be buzzing around up there by the end of 2011,” Coulter reports.
