AGU 2016 SESSION: P032: The Science of Exploration as enabled by the Moon, Near Earth Asteroids and the moons of Mars

agu2016

Session ID#: 13390
Session Description:

A close collaboration between science, technology and exploration will enable deeper understanding of the Moon and other airless bodies as we move further out of low-Earth orbit.  The Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI) will focus on the scientific aspects of exploration as they pertain to the Moon, Near Earth Asteroids (NEAs) and the moons of Mars.  This session will feature interdisciplinary, exploration-related science centered around all airless bodies targeted as potential human destinations.  Areas of study reported here will represent the broad spectrum of lunar, NEA, and Martian moon sciences encompassing investigations of the surface, interior, exosphere, and near-space environments as well as science uniquely enabled from these bodies.  Graduate students and early career researchers are particularly encouraged to submit for oral presentations.

Submit an Abstract to this session.

Final Abstract Submission Deadline is August 3, 11:59 PM EDT.

Primary Convener:  Brad E Bailey, NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, CA, United States

Conveners:  Yvonne J Pendleton, Gregory K Schmidt and Kristina Gibbs, NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, CA, United States
