Redirect: “How should we protect and preserve our history — on the Moon?”


Lisk Feng

Lucas Laursen has a good piece in ideas.ted.com entitled: “How should we protect and preserve our history — on the Moon?” I spoke to him about this story of preserving the lunar landing sites, as did others associated with pursuing their preservation. The story is here. Any feedback is most welcome.

    I agree, Roger, this is a good op-ed. One lunar heritage preservation concern I’d add beyond those attributable to landings and rovers is future impacts. There ought to be a guideline discouraging off-Earth architectures from utilizing hypervelocity lunar impact as a routine means of disposing artifacts such as Apollo’s Saturn IV-B and Lunar Module ascent stage. Such impacts can raise dust and debris clouds whose fallout footprints could be global in scope. Unchecked, the lunar surface deposition rate from this fallout will exceed that from natural impacts by orders of magnitude.
