Lunar Trailblazer - A Caltech-led Pioneering Small Satellite for Lunar Water and Lunar Geology
Join Bethany Ehlmann, professor of planetary science at Caltech and research scientist at JPL, as she discusses Lunar Trailblazer, a Caltech-led and JPL-managed mission to send a small satellite to quantify and study water on the Moon.

Selected in June 2019 as one of NASA's first planetary science small satellite missions, Lunar Trailblazer will collect data to simultaneously measure composition, temperature, and thermophysical properties of the Moon's surface, providing maps of future candidate landing sites for robotic and human exploration. In addition to advancing space science, Lunar Trailblazer also pioneers a collaboration between Caltech and Pasadena City College to train students to perform mission team roles in design, build, and operations.
