Description
S92-49394 (1992) --- (Artist's concept of possible exploration programs.) A one-meter transit telescope is shown mounted to a robotic lunar lander on the surface of the Moon. The Moon is a uniquely suitable platform for astronomy, which could include extreme ultraviolet images of Earth's magnetosphere (permitting study of solar wind interaction), the first far ultraviolet sky survey, and first-generation optical interferometers and very long wavelength radio telescopes. The instrument illustrated is a Lunar Ultraviolet Telescope Experiment (LUTE), which takes advantage of the stable and atmosphere-free lunar surface, and uses the Moon's rotation to survey the ultraviolet sky. The lander is an "Artemis" - class lander capable of delivering up to 200 kilograms to the lunar surface. The "Artemis" robotic lunar lander is designed for cost-effective delivery of payloads to the Moon to study lunar geology, astronomy, and as a precursor to human lunar expeditions. This image was produced for NASA by John Frassanito and Associates. Technical concepts from NASA's Planetary Projects Office (PPO), Johnson Space Center (JSC).

Description
S91-52338 (1991) --- (Artist's concept of possible exploration programs.) An "Artemis" - class lander, capable of delivering up to 200 kilograms to the lunar surface, has delivered a teleoperated rover to the lunar surface. The rover has surveyed the landing site for an eventual human landing. The piloted vehicle is shown in the background during the final stage of its descent. The "Artemis" robotic lunar lander is designed for cost-effective delivery of payloads to the Moon to study lunar geology, astronomy, and as a precursor to human lunar expeditions. This image was produced for NASA by Pat Rawlings. Technical concepts from NASA's Planetary Projects Office (PPO), Johnson Space Center (JSC).
