SPACE reports that on March 18, NASA officials said in remarks at a NASA town hall during the Lunar and Planetary Science Conference that the agency is seeking to land a rover on the moon by 2023. Science Mission Directorate Deputy Associate Administrator for Exploration Steve Clarke said, “We’re trying to get to the moon with a rover as soon as possible, we’re really trying to target 2023.” The agency emphasized a “desire to make sure scientists feel included in the quest to return humans to the moon, which can sometimes feel like a separate endeavor directed toward separate goals.” (Image Credit: NASA)
