Outpost concepts are now being designed and studied by engineers, scientists, and sociologists to facilitate long-duration human missions to the surface of the Moon or other planetary bodies. Such outposts will include habitat modules, laboratory modules, power systems, transportation, life support systems, protection from the environment, communications for planetary surface operations, and communications back to Earth.

Outpost concepts are now being designed and studied by engineers, scientists, and sociologists to facilitate long-duration human missions to the surface of the Moon or other planetary bodies. Such outposts will include habitat modules, laboratory modules, power systems, transportation, life support systems, protection from the environment, communications for planetary surface operations, and communications back to Earth.

During this web seminar, participants will learn how to have your students solve the problem involving an astronaut servicing three instruments on the relatively flat lunar surface around an equatorial lunar outpost. To solve the problem, students add, subtract, and resolve displacement and velocity vectors to determine components of a vector along two specified, mutually perpendicular axes and determine the net displacement of a particle or the location of a particle relative to another. This problem is a straightforward application of vector concepts.

Nearly 40 years have passed since the last Apollo missions investigated the mysteries of the lunar atmosphere and the question of levitated lunar dust. The most important questions remain: what is the composition, structure and variability of the tenuous lunar exosphere? What are its origins, transport mechanisms, and loss processes? Is lofted lunar dust the cause of the horizon glow observed by the Surveyor missions and Apollo astronauts? How does...  [view full summary]
Nearly 40 years have passed since the last Apollo missions investigated the mysteries of the lunar atmosphere and the question of levitated lunar dust. The most important questions remain: what is the composition, structure and variability of the tenuous lunar exosphere? What are its origins, transport mechanisms, and loss processes? Is lofted lunar dust the cause of the horizon glow observed by the Surveyor missions and Apollo astronauts? How does such levitated dust arise and move, what is its density, and what is its ultimate fate?

The Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE) is a small spacecraft mission being developed and led by Ames Research Center. It is equipped with a neutral mass spectrometer, a dust detector and an ultraviolet/visible spectrometer. Its goal: to assess the compositional makeup and variability of the Moon's thin atmosphere, and to establish once and for all if a mysterious dust lofting phenomenon occurs.

This web seminar will describe the methods of measuring high-resolution gravitational fields of the planets with emphasis on recent techniques for the Moon on the upcoming lunar mission Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory (GRAIL), which is based on the GRACE Earth mission. The measurements will be used to deduce the interior structure of the Moon from the crust to the core. The measurement techniques description will start with the classical Doppler method on radio links to Earth-based stations utilized on all deep space mission (single spacecraft) exploring bodies in the solar system and the newer spacecraft-to-spacecraft links.

The latter are necessary where the classical method does not work such as at the Moon, where the far side is not viewed from Earth and a Line-Of-Sight Doppler link is not possible. The science description will start with the interpretation of planetary gravitational fields, especially when correlated with topography (of comparable field-size) to remove the effects of the topography and start peeling the "layers of the onion" to investigate the interior structure, including crustal thickness, lithospheric rigidity and, one of GRAIL's ambitious objectives, constraining the size of a possible core from tidal effects.
