This event is part of the ASCENDxSeries, a collection of online events powered by AIAA and ASCEND—the new, global platform for innovation that’s accelerating space commerce and new discoveries.

On 2 April 2020, NASA released the “Plan for Sustained Lunar Exploration and Development,” in response to direction from the National Space Council.
