The NASA Lunar Science Institute is pleased to announce the 4th annual NASA Lunar Science Forum on July 19-21, 2011. This year's forum will feature sessions on the latest scientific results from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, Lunar Crater Observation Sensing Satellite, a side conference for lunar graduate students and young professionals, as well as the presentation of the annual Shoemaker Medal and associated keynote lecture. As in past years, science sessions are structured to report on both recent results and future opportunities for lunar science, education and outreach.
The conference will review the state of knowledge, and opportunities for science:
Presentations on elements of education and public outreach are included to better understand how lunar exploration can be used to stimulate public interest in space exploration and improve science literacy.
Abstract collection ended on May 13, 2011.
