Dr. Craig Hargrove Leads Mission to Moon

A CubeSat mission led by Dr. Craig Hardgrove was recently selected by NASA as part of its ongoing program of lunar exploration. About the size of a shoebox, the LunaH-Map mission is being developed by a team at Arizona State University with a goal of producing a detailed map of water ice deposits across the moon. CubeSat missions provide low-cost opportunities for investigators to develop their own space-based experiments, and the selection of LunaH-Map represents a big step forward for Dr. Hardgrove, his team at ASU, and the future of lunar exploration. We wish the LunaH-Map team the best of luck as they begin development and testing.
