NASA has awarded more than a million dollars to researchers at Ohio State University in Columbus to develop a spatial orientation system for use on the moon. Scheduled to be completed by 2011, the new system will be designed to seem quite similar to the familiar Global Positioning System to the astronauts who use it. The plan is to build a prototype system in the next year or two and perform operational tests in a remote location such as the Mojave Desert.
