Simulated lunar sample return mission

2019-12-23 - The CSA partnered with the European Space Agency to conduct a series of field tests to replicate a lunar sample return mission. The Lunar Exploration Analogue Deployment (LEAD) field tests put the CSA's Juno rover prototypes in harsh environments to test navigation systems, practise collecting samples, validate the time and tools needed to execute specific rover operations, and identify possible problems.
