The Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) team that established a national, cross-sector consortium to help advance and develop new lunar surface technology will be awarded one of NASA Headquarters’ 2020 Honor Awards — its highest form of recognition — for its outstanding contributions to the agency’s mission.

The Lunar Surface Innovation Consortium, or LSIC, is led by APL’s Space Exploration Sector and is sponsored by NASA’s Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD). It brings together innovators from the nation’s universities, nonprofit organizations, commercial companies and government agencies to help NASA keep the United States at the forefront of lunar exploration.
