NASA invites media to learn about Langley's moon landing technologies, deadline for participation is 3 January 2024 at noon

NASA is now inviting interested media to learn about two technologies currently in development at NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia. Interested media participants will be able to view the researchers' discussion during an event scheduled for January 4, 2024. The event will begin at 9:30 am on the specified date in Langley.

Technologies discussed at the event are Navigation Doppler Lidar (NTL) and Stereo Cameras for Lunar Plume-Surface Studies (SCALPSS). NASA will launch both technologies to the Moon in two flights in the coming weeks as part of NASA's Commercial Lunar Payload Services (CLPS) initiative.

How you can participate: Interested media should contact Joe Atkinson [email protected] No later than noon on Wednesday, January 3, 2024.

Release date of both technologies: According to NAS's official blog, the NDL is scheduled to launch from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida on January 8, 2024 aboard the Astrobotics Peregrine 1 lander aboard a United Launch Alliance Vulcan Centaur rocket. The NDL is not considered a CLPS payload and is a critical system provided by NASA to Astrobotics in this release.

Previous coverage of the Astrobotic Artemis robotic moon launch can be found here.

NASA blogs also note that NDL and SCALPSS 1.0 are scheduled to launch from Kennedy Space on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket aboard the Intuitive Machines Nova-C lander, which will land in Florida in February. Unlike the NDL launched on the Astrobotics Peregrine 1 lander, the NDL and ScalPSS 1.O are the NASA CLPS payloads on the Intuitive Engines Nova-C lander.
