  • Thomsen, Jeffrey M.; Austin, Michael G.; Ruhl, Stephen F.; Schultz, Peter H.; Orphal, Dennis L. (Pergamon Press, 1979)
    Early time two-dimensional finite difference calculations of laboratory-scale hypervelocity (6 km/sec) impact of 0.3 g spherical 2024 aluminum projectiles into homogeneous plasticene clay targets were performed and the ...
  • Ryder, Graham (National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Space Life Sciences Directorate. Solar System Exploration Division. Office of the Curator., 1993-01)
    The present volume, for the South Massif and Light Mantle, describes the 55 individual rock fragments collected at Stations 2, 2A, 3, and LRV-5. Some were chipped from boulders, others collected as individual rocks, some ...
  • Lofgren, Gary E.; Lofgren, Ellen M. (Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center, 1981-08)
    Megascopic descriptions of 133 basaltic rocks returned from the Moon are presented along with photographs of each rock and its thin section, if available. The major and trace element chemistry of each is included wherever ...

    A principal goal of the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) rover Curiosity is to identify and characterize past habitable environments on Mars. Determination of the mineralogical and chemical composition of Martian rocks and ...
  • Beyer, Ross A.; Nimmo, Francis; McKinnon, William B.; Moore, J. (Jeff); Binzel, Richard P.; Conrad, Jack W.; Chen, Andy; Ennico, K.; Lauer, Tod R.; Olkin, C. B.; Robbins, Stuart; Schenk, Paul M.; Singer, Kelsi; Spencer, John R. (John Robert), 1957-; Stern, Alan, 1957-; Weaver, Harold A., 1953-; Young, L. A.; Zangari, Amanda M. (Elsevier, 2016-12-16)
    New Horizons images of Pluto’s companion Charon show a variety of terrains that display extensional tectonic features, with relief surprising for this relatively small world. These features suggest a global extensional ...
  • Wiens, Roger C.; Kirkland, L. E. (Laurel Ellyn) (Springer, 2012-06-21)
    The ChemCam instrument suite on the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) rover Curiosity provides remote compositional information using the first laser-induced breakdown spectrometer (LIBS) on a planetary mission, and provides ...
  • Boyce, Jeremy W.; Treiman, Allan H.; https://orcid.org/0000-0002-8073-2839; Guan, Yunbin; Ma, Chi; Eiler, John M.; Gross, Juliane; Greenwood, James P.; Stolper, Edward M. (American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2015-09-25)
    The Moon contains chlorine that is isotopically unlike that of any other body yet studied in the Solar System, an observation that has been interpreted to support traditional models of the formation of a nominally hydrogen-free ...
  • Krot, A. N.; Alexander, Conel (Lunar and Planetary Institute, 2004)
    Attempts to understand how components in primitive chondrites and interplanetary dust particles were formed and thermally processed in the protoplanetary disk by comparing cosmochemical constraints with astronomical ...
  • Boley, Aaron; https://orcid.org/0000-0002-0574-4418; Morris, Melissa; Ciesla, Fred (Lunar and Planetary Institute, 2017)
    Explores how astrophysical observations can constrain chondrule formation models and how chondrules can help us put astrophysical observations in context.
  • Basu, Abhijit; Mckay, David S.; Fruland, Ruth M. (Pergamon Press, 1978)
    Particles of olivine-vitrophyre make up less than one percent of the <250 μm fraction of the Luna 24 soils. They contain microphenocrysts of olivine and spinel, together with a variety of olivine, pyroxene, plagioclase, a ...
  • Dressler, Burkhard O.; Sharpton, Virgil L. (Ontario Geological Survey, 1996)
    Provides a summary of the impact process. Also some of the results of laboratory investigations conducted in 1995 and 1996. Describes the various clastic breccias encountered on the islands during 1994 and 1995 field work ...
  • Bristow, Thomas F.; Craig, Patricia; https://orcid.org/0000-0003-4080-4997; Treiman, Allan H.; https://orcid.org/0000-0002-8073-2839 (American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2018-06-06)
    Clay minerals provide indicators of the evolution of aqueous conditions and possible habitats for life on ancient Mars. Analyses by the Mars Science Laboratory rover Curiosity show that ~3.5–billion year (Ga) fluvio-lacustrine ...
  • Spudis, Paul D.; Bussey, Ben; https://orcid.org/0000-0003-3391-0417 (Lunar and Planetary Institute, 1997)
    A selection of imagery and global data coverage obtained by the Clementine spacecraft.
  • Matsui, Takafumi (Pergamon Press, 1978)
    The early growth of planetesimals by mutual direct collisions is numerically simulated with a Monte Carlo technique to show how planetesimals with specific mass and velocity distributions evolve into a full-size planet. ...
  • Kornuta, David A. (United Launch Alliance, 2018)
    This paper is the result of an examination by industry, government, and academic experts of the approach, challenges, and payoffs of a private business that harvests and processes lunar ice as the foundation of a lunar, ...
  • Bullock, Mark A. (Lunar and Planetary Institute, 2012)
    The purpose of the conference was to identify and explore physical and chemical climate processes that are shared among rocky planets with atmospheres, in order to advance scientific progress through detailed comparisons. ...
