On March 19–23, 2012, the 43rd Lunar and Planetary Science Conference will be held at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel and Convention Center in The Woodlands, Texas.
This conference brings together international specialists in petrology, geochemistry, geophysics, geology, and astronomy to present the latest results of research in planetary science. The five-day conference will be organized by topical symposia and problem-oriented sessions.
The year 2012 will mark completion of the first 50 years of nuclear-powered spaceflight, which began with launch of the Transit 4A satellite in June 1961. In honor of this occasion, we are pleased to announce that the 43rd LPSC will be held in conjunction with the Nuclear and Emerging Technologies for Space (NETS) topical meeting, which will take place March 21–23, 2012.
Nuclear power has been an enabling technology for the most ambitious planetary missions in history. Holding the meetings together, with a joint plenary session on Wednesday, will allow the planetary science community to learn more about the latest developments in nuclear power and propulsion, and see how new technologies could help their exploration efforts in the future.
