    The Exploration of the Moon and then onto Mars


    Dr. James L. Green

    NASA Chief Scientist

    RSVP and Information

    Scientists believe that the Moon was formed out of a collision between the Earth with a Mars sized planet named Theia at a very early stage of the development of the solar system. From then on, the Earth and the Moon's evolution have been intertwined. The Moon has kept the Earth's rotational axis pointing in the same direction providing a significant level of stability for the Earth's climate. Today, the Moon holds many fascinating mysteries for scientists to explore. Scientifically there has been several stunning advances in lunar science and a realization that going back to the Moon will provide scientists and explorers the opportunity to live to live and work on a planetary surface. NASA's future plan is to go to the Moon to stay and then onto Mars.
