Space scientist, geologist Farouk El-Baz to receive 2018 Inamori Ethics Prize

11 12 2017

CLEVELAND, Dec. 11, 2017 -- As Apollo 11 descended to the moon's surface, the NASA scientists responsible for choosing the first lunar landing site was as anxious as the rest of the world. "All our hearts were pounding," recalled geologist Farouk El-Baz, a scientist on the site-selection committee. "What if the moon was completely different than we thought? We were not 100 percent sure of all aspects, so there was room for error." The capsule touched down July 20, 1969, four miles from the predicted landing point. But the mission—and five Apollo lunar landings that followed—was a rousing success.   El-Baz was involved in each. He also created and still directs a NASA-recognized "Center of Excellence," the Center for Remote Sensing at Boston University, which uses space technology to study the earth and its environment. For his life's work, El-Baz will receive the 2018 Inamori Ethics Prize from the Inamori International Center for Ethics and Excellence at Case...
