NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) will be hosting the 2021 NASA Exploration Science Forum & European Lunar Symposium July 20-23, 2021 as a virtual meeting.
According to their website, “This conference will bring together scientists from around the world to focus on science which enables human and robotic exploration, and science enabled by human exploration as relates to the target bodies of the Moon, Near Earth Asteroids, and moons of Mars.”
This will be the first time that the organizers have made this accessible to the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing communities by adding ASL interpreters to this virtual event. Indianapolis-based Midwest Language Services, LLC, in cooperation with its network of interpreters, will provide interpretation for this event.
Topics include NASA’s robot VIPER (Volatiles Investigating Polar Exploration Rover) which will explore the moon’s surface for water and ice, which will help provide a sustained human presence on the moon.
