  • Lunar Sinuous Rilles Atlas
    contains red circles that represent the source locations of each sinuous rille Sinuous rilles are identified with numbers that correlate with a matching set of numbers in a database accessible at a link below The atlas allows the user to zoom into the sinuous rille of interest by centering the region of interest on the screen and scrolling the mouse wheel or clicking shift on the keyboard click control to zoom out Alternatively the user can select the sinuous rille of interest by number from the drop down menu at the top right of the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera s LROC Wide Angle Camera WAC image mosaic High resolution Kaguya Terrain Camera TC images and additional geographic information for each feature can be accessed by clicking on the red icon associated with each sinuous rille the window that appears can be moved by clicking and dragging the top bar of the window Different hemisphere views of the Moon can be accessed by clicking the associated link on the gray navigation bar on the right side of the screen For more details about the sinuous rilles mapped in this atlas please see the associated paper referenced below Reference Hurwitz D M

  • Early Mars: Geologic, Hydrologic, and Climatic Evolution and the Implications for Life
    Mars 2014 Opportunities for Early Mars postdocs grad students and staff at the University of Chicago Ancient Mars probably too cold for liquid water Planet s atmosphere was too thin to keep its surface consistently warm analysis suggests Nature Geoscience See Kite et al 2014 Warming Early Mars with CO 2 and H 2 new research suggests a different way of achieving a warm greenhouse environment on early Mars Astrobiology See Ramirez et al 2014 Last updated August 5 2014 Welcome to the LPI Early Mars topical website The influx of new data received from recent spacecraft missions to Mars the study of the SNC meteorites recent progress in early climate modeling the growing evidence of the role of water in the planet s evolution and the rapid pace of new discoveries about the origin and diversity of life on Earth have reinvigorated interest in both the conditions that prevailed on Mars during its first billion years of geologic history and their implications for the development of life These issues were addressed at the First International Conference on Early Mars which was held in Houston Texas in April 1997 at the Second Conference which was held in Jackson Hole Wyoming

  • Center for Lunar Science and Exploration
    may be targets for future human exploration Use that core lunar and near Earth asteroid science to develop education and public outreach programs that will energize and capture the imagination of K 14 audiences and the general public Science The LPI JSC team is augmented by faculty students and analytical facilities at the University of Arizona University of Hawaii University of Houston University of Maryland University of Notre Dame It is also augmented with research scientists at the Arecibo Observatory the United States Geological Survey and the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center This collaborative program is built around the Apollo sample collection which provides the highest fidelity view of the lunar surface for a new generation of lunar scientists and the Antarctic meteorite collection which provides an immense number of near Earth asteroid samples The team s science theme is driven by the highest priority science concept the bombardment history of the inner solar system is uniquely revealed on the Moon and highest priority goal to test the lunar cataclysm hypothesis that were identified by the National Research Council 2007 for NASA s Science Mission Directorate SMD This investigative theme will carry us from the earliest moments of the Moon s origin through the immensely important basin forming epoch to new analyses of impact contributions to the lunar regolith The team s work will explore the role of near Earth asteroids in those processes and how their collisional history may be driven by other Solar System processes both in the past and in the context of future impact hazards Exploration The Center s activities are designed to integrate the objectives of NASA s Science Mission Directorate SMD with the exploration objectives of NASA s Human and Exploration Operations Mission Directorate HEOMD The team s experience with lunar surface samples asteroid
