NASA: A case for the Moon

NASA’s internal Powerpoint presentation style was critiqued by Edward Tufte who had even apportioned some responsibility to poorly structured/presented information in Powerpoint for the Columbia crash. Powerpoints like those are certainly not easy (at least for the layman) to read and understand – perhaps those decks really needed rocket scientists to decipher.

A rare gem coming off NASA is this presentation pressing for Moon exploration, though:


In the 100+ slides, “Why the Moon?” compares lunar exploration to the expedition to Antartica last century, drawing a case for continued exploration on the moon. Quite an interesting and inspiring read – PDF though.
