Abstract
The moon is widely regarded as the next step into space for us. NASA, ESA and other agencies have recently begun new missions in the next thrust towards lunar exploration. NAL has started fundamental studies of the technologies needed for the long-term utilization of the moon as a technological and scientific base. NAL is currently taking part in the research phase of the Selenological and Engineering Explorer - B (SELENE-B) project, which was separated from SELENE in 2000, and in 2001 was dedicated primarily to overseeing safe-landing demonstration projects by NASDA, ISAS, and NAL. Safe-landing technology is very challenging, but obviously a vital necessity, an...
