Research overview:
On the scientific exploration using a moonlander or a rover, examination is made from both facets of science and engineering for the contents of scientific observation, method of exploration, examination of onboard equipment, and method of operation of the mission in moon surface exploration by the successor of 'SELENE' (SELENE-B, -2). Because the soft landing technology is a basic technology for the future moon and planet explorations, it is recognized as one item of next moon exploration WG. Presently, examination is being made on the mission scenario and the details of onboard observation equipment and the rover.
