Virtual Panel – Herding Data from Space Rocks, November 11
Thursday, November 11, 5:00 p.m. CST

The Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI) will host “Herding Data from Space Rocks,” a virtual panel discussion on the evening of November 11, 2021, at 5:00 p.m. CST. Data collection is fundamental to the process of science and to our understanding of the solar system. Studies of lunar samples from the Apollo Next Generation Sample Analysis (ANGSA) initiative, asteroid samples from NASA’s OSIRIS-REx mission and samples from future missions such as Artemis and Mars Sample Return, will be instrumental in answering the big questions in planetary science.

How do researchers create data? How is it shared? How is all this data stored for future analysis? Join the conversation with planetary scientists who study astromaterials as we discuss these questions and recap lessons learned from the workshop on Astromaterials Data Management in the Era of Sample Return Missions.
