New Views of the Moon 2

Final Announcement

Meeting Location and Date

The New Views of the Moon 2 workshop will be held May 24–26, 2016, at the Lunar and Planetary Institute, which is located in the Universities Space Research Association (USRA) building, 3600 Bay Area Blvd, Houston, Texas.

Important Note About Parking
Limited parking is available at the USRA building, so workshop participants are asked to park in the University Baptist Church (UBC) parking lot. A shuttle bus will run throughout the workshop to take participants to and from their cars.

Directions from Bay Area Blvd.:  Turn left on Middlebrook Drive and continue 0.4 miles. The UBC parking lot will be on the right, just past Glenshannon Drive. There are plenty of parking spaces available for workshop participants, and signs will be posted at the shuttle pickup and drop off location at the north side of the lot.

Note:  Only employees with USRA Parking Passes will be allowed to park in the USRA lot.

Purpose and Scope

This workshop represents the first step in publishing the New Views of the Moon 2 book. This volume will be the sequel to the 2006 publication, which lacks data from missions, sample analyses, and Earth-based observations made this century. An outline of chapters has been proposed by the steering committee, and chapter leads have been identified. The purpose of this workshop is to solicit community input for the chapters, propose new ideas, and formulate writing teams. Integration between the different chapters will be explored and highlighted, and a timetable will be developed for completion of tasks developed at the workshop.
