Brazilian astronomer Rosaly Lopes, researcher and chief scientist of planetary sciences at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory of NASA, the North American space agency, closely follows the unfolding of the Artemis Mission, a program that should pave the way for the return of human beings to the moon after 50 years.
Despite not acting directly on Artemis trips, Rosaly highlights the importance of NASA’s return to the Moon for the future of space exploration. The project foresees sending the first woman and the first non-white person to the lunar surface in 2024.
The return of manned missions to the Moon is a milestone in the new ongoing space race, with the arrival of new players such as China, India and private sector companies. The expectation is that the discoveries obtained with space exploration will produce technological and scientific development.
In this episode of E Tem Mais, Carol Nogueira interviews Brazilian scientist Rosaly Lopes, who describes how NASA’s new lunar program can help unravel some of the biggest mysteries about our universe.
