  Information - PS2.03 Lunar science and SMART-1 first results

Event Information
Lunar science is having something of a renaissance with the possibility of the return of man to the Moon in the next 20 years and a range of new and exciting remote sensing missions being developed by India, China, Japan, the US and Europe. Interpretation of lunar geology and evolution is ongoing with the analysis of Apollo, Luna and meteoritic samples being combined with geophysical modelling and knowledge gained from remote sensing operations to develop models of lunar formation, evolution and geological diversity.

SMART-1 is Europe’s first mission to the Moon. After an 18 month cruise, SMART-1 arrived in its lunar orbit in early 2005 and has been conducting a range of lunar scientific operations for much of the present year.

We invite for this session papers on the first results of the SMART-1 mission to the Moon and papers studying diverse aspects of lunar science including sample analysis and geochronology, impact processes, geophysics, geophysical modelling and synergies between the different disciplines. Papers on future missions to the Moon are also welcome.
