    The Moon is an astronomical body orbiting Earth as its only natural satellite. It is the fifth-largest satellite in the Solar System, and by far the largest among planetary satellites relative to the size of the planet that it orbits (its primary). The Moon is, after Jupiter 's satellite Io, the second- densest satellite in the Solar System among those whose densities are known. Moon Full.

    Earth-based telescopic observations are the primary means of studying the large populations of primitive bodies. Following discovery and orbit determination, telescopic data can probe an object’s shape and size, mineralogy, orbital and rotational attributes, presence of volatiles, and physical properties of the surface material including.

    Executive Summary. The NASA Astrobiology Institute team led by the Carnegie Institution of Washington is dedicated to the study of the extrasolar planets, solar system formation, organic rich primitive planetary bodies, deep sequestration of CHON volatiles in terrestrial planets, prebiotic molecular synthesis through geocatalysis, and the connection between planetary evolution the emergence. Ralph Baldwin (), holder of a Ph.D. in astronomy, and later, President of the Oliver Machinery Company, utilized World War II bomb crater statistics and telescopic lunar crater measurements to analyze the formation process of lunar craters. His book demonstrated that lunar craters were probably explosion craters formed by meteorite.

The Kuiper quadrangle, located in a heavily cratered region of Mercury, includes the young, km-diameter crater Kuiper (11° S., °), which has the highest albedo recorded on the planet, and the small crater Hun Kal (° S., °), which is the principal reference point for Mercurian longitude (Davies and Batson, ).

Telescopic observations from the Earth, observations by spacecraft from lunar orbit, measurements on the lunar surface by manned and unmanned landed missions, the analyses of lunar samples including those returned by the Apollo and Luna missions, and lunar meteorites found on the Earth are important sources of information that were used to.

The book is written and edited by scientists from academia, industry, and government active in every field of lunar research and all veterans of the Apollo program.

Engineers, mission planners, planetary scientists, educators, and students interested in scientific study and exploration of the Moon will find this a unique and essential reference. The time between the first telescopic observation of the Moon by Galileo () to the Apollo and Luna landings in early s (and subsequent analysis of the lunar samples) span almost three centuries of observations, hypotheses and validation of popular theories that provided numerous perspectives on the astronomical, dynamical and geological aspects of the Moon (e.g., [17,18]).

The Lunar Sourcebook, a concisely presented collection of data gathered during the American and Soviet missions, is an accessible and complete one-volume reference encyclopedia of current scientific and technical information about the Moon.

This book provides a thorough introduction to lunar studies and a summary of current information. The introductory chapter cites questions, controversies, and milestones in the study of Mars, and also includes an annotated book list, basic data about the planet, and a guide to Martian seasons.

A chapter on telescopic observation credits the contributions made by many amateurs that have advanced our knowledge of variations observed on Mars. We present the first globally consistent map of lunar light plains from Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera mosaics m/pixel.

Based on this map, ~70% of light plains are likely related to the Orientale and Imbrium basins; however, many light plains deposits originated with local‐ and regional‐scale impacts, nonmare volcanics (i.e., the Apennine Bench Formation), as well as.

An exhaustive summary would be far beyond the scope of National Research Council (NRC) reports, and COMPLEX is quick to admit that this report is far from exhaustive. The report first reviews nine topics that comprehensively describe contemporary Mars science (Chapters 2 through 10), working from the interior of the planet outward.

Early telescopic observations and orbital measurements of the lunar surface from the Clementine UV visible camera and the Galileo solid‐state imager identified exposures thought to be evidence of the Moon's primary anorthositic crust around the inner rings of lunar basins [e.g., Spudis et al., ; Hawke et al., ; Peterson.Lindsay, John F.
