There are a lot of people who love the landings of the world’s top space explorers.
They’re so beautiful, they take us back to the stars and they’re so amazing.
But there’s a growing number of people, including some of the country’s leading space researchers, who don’t think these landings are nearly as amazing as they once were.
“I was excited about the lander when it was first launched,” says Mark Massey, a space scientist at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
“But I’m not so excited about it now.”
Massey and his colleagues, who have been working on a new satellite for the US space agency, the National Reconnaissance Office, recently launched a new lander called the Lander-1 that is aimed at taking us back down to the Earth.
The lander-like satellite was originally launched in 2009, but its final flight has not yet been scheduled.
Massey says the landest mission is about to begin, but the time frame for the first landing is not set in stone.
The initial mission will be an Earth-bound mission to the moon, but it will also send back information about the geology and atmosphere of the lunar surface, Massey says.
This will include measurements of soil conditions, which can provide clues to the history of the moon and help scientists understand how water has formed in the Earth’s crust.
There’s a lot more to the landing than what’s being released right now.
The team plans to collect and analyze a sample of lunar dust to get an idea of how much of the surface is covered by ice, water, and other rocks.
It will also examine how the atmosphere of moon is affected by the moon’s gravity and temperature.
“If you go back to where it was when the land was launched, the atmosphere was really thick,” Massey explains.
In other words, there’s something very special about the moon.
It’s still not clear whether the land would actually work, but NASA plans to send the landER2 to a location on the moon to perform its own lander landing.
“This mission is just the first step in that process,” Massell says.
It will be a huge step forward for the Landers.
The Landers are still only prototypes, and Massey hopes they can be used to test a wide variety of technologies in space.
“It will give us a chance to look at technologies that are still in development,” he says.
“It’s exciting that we’re able to bring these technologies to life.”
