Description

Living and working on the moon requires specialized technology. NASA's plans to return to the moon have changed, but learn more about the innovative lunar crane developed by NASA for use in heavy lifting on other worlds. See how composite materials are used to improve the mass: strength ratio and how variable degrees of rotation allow this versatile machine to move. [Archived 2014 - Not all missions make it from design to launch. These archived videos describe missions that that would have taken humans back to the moon and unmanned aerial vehicles to Mars. While the actual missions were aborted, the technology and science behind the missions pushed innovation to new levels.]
