Planetary Society Hangout, Jan.21, 2013 with lunar geologist Sarah Noble

The Planetary Society Hangout on  Jan 31, 2013 welcomed Sarah Noble, a lunar geologist and a member of  the Research & Analysis program at NASA Headquarters. She talked about the space science program and in particular how space science proposals are reviewed and selected.  She also discussed lunar science and declared that the Moon is definitely not a “been there, done that” kind of place. There is a lot of good science left to be done there. She described, for example, NASA’s LADEE mission, which will look at the dust and hyper-thin atmosphere around the Moon.
