March 16-20, 2020 51st Lunar and Planetary Science Conference (#lpsc2020), The Woodlands, Texas
This conference brings together international specialists in petrology, geochemistry, geophysics, geology, and astronomy to present the latest results of research in planetary science.
March 18-19, 2020 Astronomy from the Moon: The Next Decades, London, United Kingdom
Low-frequency radio astronomy from the radio-shielded lunar far side can have a unique science impact on cosmology potentially at modest cost. The permanently shadowed lunar craters may offer advantages for passive cooling of infrared telescopes. This meeting will examine these and other potential uses of the Moon as a platform for astronomical observations and the policy implications.
April 28-30, 2020 Lunar Surface Science Workshop, Denver, Colorado Area
NASA is organizing a workshop to discuss new scientific research that could be enabled by human exploration near the lunar south pole. NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate, and Science and Technology Mission Directorate are co-sponsoring a three-day workshop to actively engage the scientific community in order to determine what science could be done by human crews on the lunar surface and how it can be achieved.
May 12-14, 2020 8th European Lunar Symposium, Padua, Italy
New scientific data returned by a number of orbiter and landed missions to the Moon have renewed a strong interest in the worldwide community in the future lunar exploration, the most recent example of which is the NASA’s announcement to return humans to the Moon by 2024 through its Artemis program. Current interests in the exploration of the Moon range from astronomical, astrophysical, geological, commercial, resource utilization, and strategic considerations, to its use as an outpost for future human exploration of the Solar System. One of the main aims of this meeting is to bring together the European scientific community interested in various aspects of lunar exploration. In addition, lunar experts from countries engaged in launching lunar missions are also invited to attend this meeting.
