Planetary scientist Dr. Paul Spudis of the Lunar and Planetary Institute presents his argument for returning humans to the Moon before reaching for Mars and other destinations. Spudis explores three reasons for returning to the Moon: It is close, it is interesting, and it is useful. He argues the Moon is a logical base for further space exploration and possibly a future home for humanity. This was the first presentation in the Lunar and Planetary Institute’s 2016–2017 Cosmic Exploration Speaker Series — Mercury to Mars: LPI Explores the Solar System.
