  • Bussey, Ben; Garvin, James B.; New, Michael; Niles, Paul; Spann, J. F. (James F.); Stansbery, Eileen K.;; (Lunar and Planetary Institute, 2018)
    The purpose of this workshop is to discuss what science could be leveraged from a deep space gateway, as well as first-order determination of what instruments are required to acquire the scientific data.
  • Edwards, Charles D; Stamenković, Vlada; Boston, Penelope J.; Lynch, Kennda;; Rivera-Valentín, Edgard G.; (2020)
    Here we focus on mission concepts, driving science objectives, and technologies that enable access to a major new frontier in planetary science, the Martian subsurface, with a focus on modern subsurface habitability & life.
  • Stamenković, Vlada; Lynch, Kennda;; Boston, Penelope J.; Tarnas, Jesse; Rivera-Valentín, Edgard G.; (2020)
    Our unparalleled knowledge regarding Mars’ crust and its geologic evolution, combined with our enhanced understanding of Earth’s deep subsurface biosphere, and sufficient development of technologies required to explore the ...
  • Foucher, F.; Hickman-Lewis, K.; Hutzler, Aurore; Joy, Katherine H.; Folco, L.; Bridges, John C.; Wozniakiewicz, P.; Martínez-Frías, J.; Debaille, V.; Zolensky, M. E. (Michael E.); Yano, H.; Bost, N.; Ferrière, L.; Lee, M.; Michalski, J.; Schroeven-Deceuninck, H.; Kminek, G.; Viso, M.; Russell, Sara S. (Sara Samantha), 1966-; Smith, C.; Zipfel, J.; Westall, F. (Elsevier, 2021-03-01)
    The practical limitations inherent to human and robotic planetary exploration necessitate the development of specific protocols and methods. This non-standard approach requires testing and validation phases in order to ...
  • Hunt, Leslie; Karl, Rita (Association for the Advancement of Computing in Education, 2000)
    This paper provides an account of the instructional design and development process used by a team of students enrolled in a graduate level course in Distance Education as the team members conceptualized and created two ...
  • Grieve, Richard A. F; Sharpton, Virgil L.; Rupert, James D.; Goodacre, Alan K. (Cambridge University Press, 1988)
    Time-series analyses of periodic, random, and a mixture of periodic and random ages indicate that it is difficult to consistently detect a period if age uncertainties are present. This problem is present in real data taken ...
  • Kiefer, Walter S.;; Righter, K. (Kevin), 1965-; (Lunar and Planetary Institute, 2018)
    The second topical conference in the LPI's The First Billion Years initiative focuses on planetary differentiation, which created the basic architecture of the planets and established the initial chemical and physical ...
  • Spudis, Paul D.;; Gillis, Jeffrey J. (Lunar and Planetary Institute, 2004)
    The digital Lunar Orbiter Atlas of the Moon is a reproduction of the 675 plates contained in Bowker and Hughes. The digital archive, however, offers many improvements upon its original hardbound predecessor. Multiple search ...
  • LaConte, Keliann; Shaner, Andrew; Shipp, Stephanie, 1964-; Ballard, Yolanda (STAR_Net, 2012)
    Engineers work to solve the basic challenges of life — including having fun! Playful Building explores the process of solving such challenges through engineering in an imaginative task: designing, building, and maintaining ...
  • Stoffler, D.; Ostertag, R.; Reimold, W. U.; Borchardt, R.; Malley, J.; Rehfeldt, A. (Pergamon Press, 1981)
    The complete collection of 139 boulder, large rock (hand specimens), rake and "soil walnut" samples (>ca. 1 g) from Station 11 and of 48 corresponding samples from Station 13, Apollo 16, has been reclassified on the basis ...
  • Lofi, Johanna; Smith, D.; Delahunty, C.; Le Ber, E.; Brun, L.; Henry, G.; Paris, J.; Tikoo, S. M.; Zylberman, W.; Pezard, P. A.; Célérier, B.; Schmitt, D. R.; Nixon, C.; Expedition 364 Science Party (Copernicus Publications, 2018-10-22)
    In 2016 an international scientific expedition drilled a 1.3 km deep hole to explore the Chicxulub impact crater, buried below the surface of the Yucatán shelf (Mexico). This crater is linked to the End-Cretaceous mass ...
  • Levine, Joel S.; Winterhalter, Daniel (Lunar and Planetary Institute, 2017)
    The workshop addressed the following questions: 1. Identification of the status of current knowledge in each of the workshop subject areas. 2. Identification of gaps in our knowledge. 3. Needed experiments and measurements ...
  • Walker, David, 1946-; Powell, M. A.; Lofgren, Gary E.; Hays, J. F. (Pergamon Press, 1978)
    Crystallization textures produced experimentally from eucrite Stannern show variations as a function of initial melting temperature (T 0) and linear cooling rate.
  • Phinney, William C.; Simonds, Charles H. (Pergamon Press, 1976)
    To increase our understanding of the formation of impact craters and the properties of their ejecta there must be an integration of data from theoretical models, cratering experiments, and observations of natural impact ...
  • Boyce, Jeremy W.; Kanee, Sarah A.; McCubbin, Francis M.; Barnes, Jessica J.; Treiman, Allan H.; (Elsevier, 2018-10-15)
    The relative abundances of chlorine isotopes measured in low-Ti basalts from the Moon appear to reflect mixing between two reservoirs: One component representing the urKREEP—the final product of the crystallization of the ...
