February 25, 2019 LPI Seminar: Crater-hosted Deposits on Mars and Moon: Targets for Science and Exploration (Bradley J. Thomson, University of Tennessee)), Lecture Hall
In this talk, I will discuss geologic context and history of materials with Gale crater on Mars and numerous polar craters on the Moon. In each case, we can analyze the present-day geology and geomorphology with a variety of techniques to infer elements of their past history. The Mars Science Laboratory rover Curiosity has been exploring the layered central mound within Gale crater on Mars from 2012 to the present. On the Moon, numerous impact structures near the lunar poles lie in permanent shadow and may host ice, although interpretations from several ground- and spacecraft-based observations diverge on the nature of these putative ice deposits.
March 16-17, 2019 Microsymposium 60: Forward to the Moon to Stay: Undertaking Transformative Lunar Science with Commercial Partners, The Woodlands, Texas
The goal of Microsymposium 60 is to provide a framework of mutual communication and understanding that will form a basis for Transformative Lunar Science to be undertaken in the immediate future and beyond, with the help of our CLPS partners. In Microsymposium 60, Forward to the Moon to Stay: Undertaking Transformative Lunar Science with Commercial Partners, key scientists are being invited to define and discuss the major outstanding transformative lunar science (TLS) questions, and to focus on identifying the most important immediate steps that can be taken to address them. What key elements of these questions can be addressed through experiments and missions conducted in collaboration with our commercial opportunities in the coming years?
March 18-22, 2019 50th Lunar and Planetary Science Conference (#lpsc2019), The Woodlands
April 16-17, 2019 The 9th International Workshop on Occultation and Eclipse (IWOE9), Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Each year since 2010, the International Occultation Timing Association, Middle East section (IOTA/ME) holds an annual international workshop on occultation and eclipse. Main topics of the workshop include a wide range of research related to occultation and eclipsing systems including: asteroid and lunar occultations; trans-neptunian objects and comets; observation processing and timing; transit of exoplanets and big data; and solar system objects. The Ninth International Workshop on Occultation and Eclipse will be held at Dubai Astronomy Group from April 16-17, 2019.
May 21-23, 2019 European Lunar Symposium, Manchester, United Kingdom
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.
July 15-17, 2019 Lunar ISRU 2019 - Developing a New Space Economy Through Lunar Resources and Their Utilization (#lunarisru), Columbia, Maryland
The world is going forward to the Moon, as has been seen by missions this century. Information from this workshop will be useful to both government and industry leaders in evolving near-term and future development priorities and plans that will enable sustainable human exploration and promote the commercialization of space.
