Administrator Griffin to Speak at Upcoming 39th Lunar and Planetary
Science Conference

November 7, 2007

LPSC 2008 logoThe Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI) is pleased to announce the upcoming 39th Lunar and Planetary Science Conference (LPSC). This year’s meeting will highlight NASA’s renewed emphasis on lunar activities.

Special sessions will focus on the current state of lunar knowledge, new and current missions to the Moon, and lunar network science.

LPSC will also feature Dr. Michael Griffin, NASA’s current Administrator, as the Monday evening keynote speaker.

The lunar focus for the 39th LPSC is especially timely in light of its coincidence with the LPI’s 40th anniversary. The Institute was established in 1968 during the Apollo missions to create a new lunar and planetary science community, and over the past four decades has served as an international leader and focal point for what is now a diverse and thriving community. We are pleased to celebrate this important milestone with the community as we look forward to NASA’s return to the Moon.

LPSC will be held March 10–14, 2008, at the South Shore Harbor Resort and Conference Center in League City, Texas. This conference brings together international specialists in petrology, geochemistry, geophysics, geology, and astronomy to present the latest results of research in lunar and planetary science. Mark your calendars!!
