Lunar Prospector is one of a series of small, low-cost spacecraft implemented by NASA to explore our Solar system. Despite being our nearest neighbour, the moon has hardly been explored and so the Lunar Prospector will aim to look for water ice, minerals and gases. These natural resources could help sustain a lunar base. Prospector will be launched from Florida on October 24th, 1997.
