MISSIONS IN VIEW

A number of other expeditions are planned, subject to available funding. With the Lunar Prospector, NASA hopes to map the Moon's chemical composition and magnetic and gravity fields. The Moon is also being considered as a location for both radio and optical telescopes. It has a stable surface, low gravity, and a negligible atmosphere, and its slow rotation offers continuous viewing for nearly two weeks at a time.
