Planetary Analogs, Planetary Geophysics, Planetary Surfaces, Titan & Outer Solar System. I am interested in surface processes on planetary bodies throughout the solar system, especially those processes that affect, or are driven by, planetary ices. I enjoy working with a diverse group of graduate students and postdocs. Review: Lunar and Planetary Rovers by Jeff Foust Monday, Janu Lunar and Planetary Rovers: The Wheels of Apollo and the Quest for Mars by Anthony Young Springer-Praxis, softcover, pp., illus. ISBN US$ The past month has been a particularly good one for extraterrestrial rovers.

Planetary Materials was the brain-child of James J. Papike, recent President of the Mineralogical Society of America and current Director of the Institute of Meteoritics at the University of New Mexico. It was probably not intentional that this volume be the largest ever produced in the Reviews in Mineralogy series, but this work has exceeded.   The gathering marks the start of the Lunar and Planetary Science Conference in The Woodlands, Texas, near Houston, an annual conference to .

Apollo Lunar Surface Journal. The Apollo Lunar Surface Journal is a record of the lunar surface operations conducted by the six pairs of astronauts who landed on the Moon from through The Journal is intended as a resource for anyone wanting to . Phil Stooke describes a research trip to the Regional Planetary Image Facility at the USGS in Flagstaff, where he discovered Jack Schmitt's proposed plans for a farside landing site for Apollo

A new map of the moon is the most comprehensive geologic map of the lunar surface (nearside shown left, farside shown right). Different colors designate different surface features, such as lunar.

Sohl, G. Schubert, in Treatise on Geophysics, Composition. The lunar surface is divided into light-colored heavily cratered highlands and smooth dark lowland maria which are most prominent on the near side. The highlands are saturated with large craters owing to their greater age in comparison to the maria and dominate the lunar far side and most of the near side.

Earth and Moon Compared The Astronaut Experience Terrain Dust Temperatures on the Lunar Surface Lunar. The present status of lunar knowledge based on U.S. and USSR lunar missions and the continuing analysis of lunar samples and data is reviewed. Particular attention given to exploration, samples, and recent concepts of the moon; the lunar environment; lunar surface processes; the lunar minerals, rocks, and regolith; chemical elements in the moon; physical properties of the lunar surface; and.

When an impact crater forms on a planetary surface, fractured pieces of the surface material are ejected and can form their own secondary craters outside of the main, or primary, crater. Secondary craters are found in large numbers on the Moon and other bodies, and.

Planetary Surface Processes is the first advanced textbook to cover the full range of geologic processes that shape the surfaces of planetary-scale bodies. Using a modern, quantitative approach, this book reconsiders geologic processes outside the traditional terrestrial context. Colonization of the Moon is the proposed establishment of a permanent human community or robotic industries on the Moon, the closest astronomical body to Earth.

Discovery of water in the soil at the lunar poles by Chandrayaan-1 in –09 renewed interest in the Moon, after NASA missions in the 's suggested the presence of lunar ng a colony at one of the lunar poles would also.

The geology of the Moon (sometimes called selenology, although the latter term can refer more generally to "lunar science") is quite different from that of Moon lacks a true atmosphere, which eliminates erosion due to weather; it does not have any known form of plate tectonics, it has a lower gravity, and because of its small size, it cooled more rapidly.

The State Key Laboratory of Lunar and Planetary Science (hereafter referred to as SKLplanets) (Macau University of Science and Technology) was approved by the Ministry of Science and Technology of China and established on October 8 th, It is the first state key laboratory in the field of astronomy and planetary SKLplanets research subjects mainly involve planetary physics.

( views) Planetary Science: A Lunar Perspective by Stuart Ross Taylor - Lunar and Planetary Institute, The technical triumph of manned landings on the Moon and the return of samples from the lunar surface has provided scientists with a unique opportunity to advance our understanding of the nature, evolution and origin of the solar system.

The upper layers of the surface are porous, consisting of loosely packed dust into which their boots sank several centimeters (Figure ). This lunar dust, like so much else on the Moon, is the product of impacts. Each cratering event, large or small, breaks up the rock of the lunar surface.

The book is written and edited by scientists from academia, industry, and government active in every field of lunar research and all veterans of the Apollo program. Engineers, mission planners, planetary scientists, educators, and students interested in scientific study and exploration of the Moon will find this a unique and essential s: 1.

The crater record of a planetary surface unit is often analyzed by its cumulative size‐frequency distribution (CSFD). Measuring CSFDs involves traditional approaches, such as traditional crater counting (TCC) and buffered crater counting (BCC), as well as geometric corrections, such as nonsparseness correction (NSC) and buffered nonsparseness correction (BNSC).

The Lunar and Planetary Mapping and Modeling Project produces a suite of interactive visualization and analysis tools. Managed by NASA’s Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute and developed at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, these tools enable mission planners, planetary scientists, and engineers to access mapped data products from a wide range of instruments aboard a.

Figure Our Cratered Moon. This composite image of the Moon’s surface was made from many smaller images taken between November and February by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) and shows craters of many different sizes."The Hatfield Lunar Atlas" has become an amateur lunar observer's bible since it was first published in A major update of the atlas was made inusing the same wonderful photographs that Commander Henry Hatfield made with his purpose-built inch ( mm) telescope, but bringing the lunar nomenclature up to date and changing the units from Imperial to S.I.
