Abstract submission begins for the next LPSC today... and I got in fast with abstract number 1001, "Re-mapping the Apollo 17 LRV traverses". I think that means I was the first to submit. One of the benefits of being supposedly retired... The website had said it would start tomorrow, but it was available today. It's not about quality, it's about being first!

There will be sessions on exploring the lunar south pole, Curiosity in the Glen Torridon, asteroids Bennu and Ryugu ..... and much more. Be there or be extremely square.

OK, UMSF members planning to attend... let's see if we can get together.

I should be there this year as in early with abstract #1052. Looking at diurnal changes in the thermal spectrum of Martian surfaces - we're seeing differences (some significant!) in THEMIS spectra taken during Ody's ~3pm orbit vs. those taken in the new ~6pm orbit. We're thinking it's due to decreasing thermal radiance from fine regolith materials as the surface cools off, so we get a stronger spectral contribution from cobbles, boulders, and bedrock. Looking at the latter would give us a better picture of Martian history, since modern erosional and aeolian processes in fine regolith (like grain sorting or lag deposit formation) might distort our understanding of the surface composition.

The abstract was submitted for a talk so we'll see if that ends up happening.
Abstracts are up:

Heads up to any LPSC attendees - I only just found this, but maybe I'm a bit slow. Supershuttle is no longer operating from IAH but Galveston Limo is doing LPSC runs from the airports. Check their website for details.

First we learn that the Chang'e 4 talks are cancelled... then LPI announces that there will be a final go/no go on LPSC itself on Friday this week. Good job I got my e-poster uploaded! But methinks it doesn't look good for LPSC this year. May you live in interesting times...

LPSC 2020 has been cancelled:

Abstracts will remain up and lots of people are putting up e-posters, so check in regularly and see all the good stuff from LPSC.

Here's a link to the eposters:

Pam's and my e-poster is up:

Comet 67P maps with photomosaics E-POSTER

just in time for the end of the Tuesday Night Poster Session!

Be patient, as it seems to take a little while to load, what with the new, 10-meg size limit.

FYI: Because these maps include Hathor, 67P's extreme overhanging cliff, these are the comet's first comprehensive photomosaics.

I'll post another link over on the comet thread, where content comments are better located. Maybe tomorrow; feeling a little tired at the moment . . .
That's very cool!
