“Land & Fly” Methods for Effective, Future Lunar Exploration

In this White Paper, we are advocating a new method of post-landing mobility in lunar exploration which we refer to as “land & fly”. We describe two different types of thruster-propelled, free flying vehicles that allow to cover kilometer-scale distances in a matter of minutes to provide precise “last-mile access” to pre-selected science targets.
