    Here we show using Dawn high-resolution stereo imaging and topography that Ceres’ unique composition has resulted in widespread mantling by solidified water- and salt-rich mud-like impact melts with scattered endogenic ...
  • Orphal, Dennis L.; Borden, W. F.; Larson, S. A.; Schultz, Peter H., 1944- (Pergamon Press, 1980)
    A series of continuum mechanics computer code calculations are planned to investigate the effects of variations in impactor mass and velocity on the generation and transport of impact melt. Results from the first two ...

Chiara; Alvaro, Matteo; Fioretti, Anna Maria; Litasov, Konstantin D.; Fries, Marc D.; Leonii, Matteo; Casati, Nicola P. M.; Jenniskens, Petrus Matheus Marie; Shaddad, Muawia H.; (National Academy of Sciences, 2020-09-28)
    We found no evidence that formation of micrometer(s)-sized diamonds or associated Fe-S-P phases in ureilites require high static pressures and long growth times, which makes it unlikely that any of the diamonds in ureilites ...
  • Warner, Jeffrey L.; Simonds, Charles H.; Phinney, William C. (Pergamon Press, 1974)
    A synthesis of the relevant data concerning lunar highland polymict breccias from the fields of petrography, chemistry, photogeology, and impact studies compels the prediction that the breccias should have homogeneous ...
  • Floran, R. J.; Caulfield, J. B. D.; Harlow, G. E.; Prinz, M. (Pergamon Press, 1978)
    The Simondium, Pinnaroo, and Hainholz mesosiderites are interpreted to be clast-laden impact melts that crystallized from immiscible silicate, metallic (Fe-FeS) liquids.
  • Schwenzer, Susanne Petra;; Abramov, Oleg; Allen, Carlton; Clifford, Stephen Mark, 1952-; Filiberto, Justin;; Kring, David A. (David Allen); Lasue, Jeremie;; McGovern, Patrick J. (Geophysicist); Newsom, Horton E.; Treiman, Allan H.;; Wittmann, Axel 1971-;;;;; (2009)
    Noachian impact craters are important exploration targets, providing subsurface access, data on crucial geological processes, and warm, water-rich environments possibly conducive to life.
  • Rivera-Valentín, Edgard G.; Taylor, Patrick A.; Sanchez-Vahamonde, Carolina Rodriguez; Hickson, Dylan; Neish, Catherine; Brozović, Marina; Whitten, Jennifer; Meyer, Heather; Busch, Michael W.; Campbell, Bruce A.; Campbell, Donald B.; Margot, Jean-Luc; Virkki, Anne K.; Venditti, Flaviane C.

    A white paper submitted to the Planetary Science and Astrobiology Decadal Survey 2023-2032. Here, we discuss several community-identified priority science questions that ground-based radar studies are particularly suited ...
  • Kiefer, Walter S.;; Nagihara, Seiichi; Grott, Matthias; Siegler, Matthew; Zacny, Kris (2020)
    On the Moon, in situ measurements of heat flow were made at the Apollo 15 and 17 landing sites [1-3] and are planned to be made in Mare Crisium on the 2023 Commercial Lunar Payload System (CLPS) mission. Measuring heat ...
  • Bass, Deborah Simone; Beaty, D. W. (David W.); Conley, Catharine; Neal, Clive R.; Wadhwa, Meenakshi; (Lunar and Planetary Institute, 2011)
    The workshop will focus on why sample return science is important to the future of solar system science and exploration, including the implications for NASA as it plans and implements future missions to a variety of solar ...
  • Udry, Arya; Filiberto, Justin;; Gross, Juliane; Schmidt, Mariek; Rogers, Deanne; Hausrath, Libby; Wiens, Roger; Lanza, Nina (2020-07)
    This white paper summarizes the scientific importance of studying igneous compositions in meteorites, surface samples, and through orbital analyses to better constrain the geology of Mars as a whole and better understand ...
  • Kaplan, David; Saunders, R. Stephen (Lunar and Planetary Institute, 1997)
    Included are the topics: Extraterrestrial resources, in situ propellant production, sampling of planetary surfaces, oxygen production, water vapor extraction from the Martian atmosphere, gas generation, cryogenic refrigeration, ...
  • Kaplan, David; Clark, Larry D. (Lunar and Planetary Institute, 1999)
    This volume contains abstracts that have been accepted for presentation at the In Situ Resource Utilization (ISRU III) Technical Interchange Meeting, February 11-12, 1999, hosted by the Lockheed Martin Astronautics Waterton ...
  • Kaplan, David (Lunar and Planetary Institute, 1997)
    The purpose of this interchange meeting is to reinvigorate the technical community by means of a discussion of technologies that could be applied to the identification, extraction, storage, and utilization of resources ...
  • Waranius, Frances B.; Tellier, Stephen H. (Special Libraries Association, 1986)
    An automated library routine management system was developed in-house to create system unique to the Library and Information Center, Lunar and Planetary Institute, Houston, Texas. A modular approach was used to allow ...

  • Criswell, David R. (National Aeronautics and Space Administration, 1979)
    The initial lunar supply base should have a mass less than 1000 tons, be deployed by 25 persons in 4 months, and be maintained by 10 persons. Output could be expanded 20 times in 5 years to 600,000 tons/yr by a factor of ...
