Space exploration should inspire our nation. It should push back the scientific and technological frontier and lead to amazing discoveries. It should inspire the youth of our nation and create an ethos that embraces science and technology. If harnessed correctly, those attributes can provide deep roots for STEM education and help ensure the future economic well-being of our country. Let’s Never Stop Exploring!

The LPI-JSC Center for Lunar Science and Exploration recently produced three new educational cards for their Never Stop Exploring series. As with previous cards in that series, they will be distributed at lunar-related conferences.

To enhance the availability of those images, they have been posted on-line with several resolutions (72, 150, and 300 dpi) and in different formats (for the iPhone and as Wallpaper), so that the community can download them.

The three new images, plus the entire collection, can be found at http://www.lpi.usra.edu/nlsi/gallery/.

  • New rock type on the lunar farside found by NLSI Team at Brown/MIT

    2010JE003727(2)

    The farside of the Moon has always been a mystery and is only accessible by spacecraft. New compositional information from the Moon Mineralogy Mapper (M3) onboard Chandrayaan‐1 has identified a suite of highly unusual rock types exposed at small areas within the farside Moscoviense Basin. M3 is a state‐of‐the art visible and near‐infrared imaging spectrometer that was a guest instrument on Chandrayaan‐1, the Indian Space Research Organization’s (ISRO) first mission to the Moon. The instrument is designed to measure accurately the diagnostic mineral absorption bands of solar radiation reflected from the lunar surface.
