Foing, Executive Director of ESA ILTWG, and Ms. Amanda Kruijver, Project member, gave a lecture entitled "Moon Mars and Space Recent Results and Future Missions". More than ten teachers and graduate students from BIT attended the report. Professor Deng Yulin hosted the report.

  Prof. Foing and Ms. Kruijver introduced several recent key experimental developments and research plans of the European Lunar Exploration Working Group, including the European Space Agency's first lunar probe SMART-1, the largest lunar simulant project “LUNA” ever. In addition, the human semi-permanent lunar base - "Lunar Village" plan, and various cooperative research progress in the simulation of lunar base space experiments carried out in the field of international cooperation also included.

  Prof. Foing and Ms. Kruijver also launched a teaching innovation activity with the theme “Lunar Exploration”. In the form of small groups, the participating students independently conducted imaginative discussions and innovative designs on the three themes of “robot exploration and life science experiment”, “moon base” and “public science”. They imagined how to build a lunar base in the future, the possible functions, and the life science experiment of the lunar base under unmanned operation. What’s more, they also considered how to promote the new methods and technologies introduced in the aforementioned process to the public. Professor Foing and Ms. Kruijver affirmed the students' creativity. Finally, Prof. Foing issued an invitation to the students of the BIT to participate in the international cooperation project of the lunar base simulation experiment.
