Oct 1. – Torin McCoy, Branch Chief, Environmental Sciences Branch, Human Health and Performance Directorate will present “Lunar Dust Toxicity:  Pivoting on our Existing Foundation to Inform Artemis”

Lunar dust is one of the many intriguing challenges inherent to a return to the lunar surface during Artemis.  Undoubtedly, it is a daunting challenge, with multifaceted control concerns and potential stakeholders.  However, while mystery remains, there is much that is known about lunar dust and its potential for crew health concerns.  This talk will explain what is truth and what is myth regarding lunar dust, and will provide a balanced perspective on risk considerations in moving toward Artemis mission objectives.
