NASA Prepares to Solve  Moon Explorer

'Lunar Mystery' With New

NASA has selected two new

science instrument suites, including one that will study the mysterious Gruithuisen Domes for the first time.

These payload suites

mark the second selection through the agency’s (PRISM) call for proposals.

Both payloads will be

 delivered to the lunar surface on future flights through NASA’s CLPS initiative

The first will study geologic

 processes of early planetary bodies that are preserved on the Moon, by investigating a rare form of lunar volcanism.

The second will study the effects

 of the Moon’s low gravity and radiation environment on yeast, a model organism used to understand DNA damage response 

The Lunar Vulkan

Imaging and Spectroscopy Explorer (Lunar-VISE) investigation consists of a suite of five instruments
