Science/Medicine : Search for Moon Ice Proposed

December 14, 1987

A mission to look for water at the moon's polar latitudes has been proposed by Jet Propulsion Laboratory scientist Dr. Albert Metzger.

"The actual presence of water as trapped ice would not only be scientifically significant but would have major implications for future operations on the moon," Metzger told the fall meeting of the American Geophysical Society.

Metzger said JPL is studying the feasibility of launching a low-altitude spacecraft from an expendable vehicle into a lunar polar orbit.
