John Batchelor and I welcomed back Dr. Haym Benaroya to discuss why the lunar South Pole seems to be the place everyone wants to go via lunar human mission. In this short segment, Dr. Benaroya explained the significance of finding and confirming the existence of large quantities of lunar water ice. He also described the south pole terrain where human missions would land, plus he talked about many of the challenges going there including facing off with the lunar dust.
