NLSI is a virtual organization that enables collaborative, interdisciplinary research in support of NASA lunar science
Our international partnerships are critical for meeting these objectives, and we are very excited by the important science, trainingand education that our new Saudi colleagues bring to the Nasa Lunar Science
NLSI will help us coordinate and expand a number of in-depth research efforts in lunar science
and other fields that can benefit from human and robotic missions that are part of Nasa's exploration plans.
Jack Burns, Director of the NASA Lunar Science
Institute's Lunar University Network for Astrophysics Research (LUNAR) and named to NASA's Advisory Council in 2008, has also joined Moon Express in a part-time capacity as chair of the company's Science Advisory Board, focused on scientific and resource utilization goals and prospects for Moon Express.
The establishment of Gerard Kuiper's Lunar and Planetary Institute in Arizona in 1960 brought about--quite literally--a more professional approach to lunar mapping, and indeed to lunar science
in general, as the USA embarked upon its run-up to the Apollo programme.
It appears that the asteroidal meteorites show signs of the asteroid belt losing a lot of mass four billion years ago, with the escaped mass beating up on both the surviving main belt asteroids and the Moon at high speeds" said lead author Simone Marchi, who has a joint appointment between two of NASA's Lunar Science
Institutes, one at the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colo.

Patrick was the perfect choice to steer the Lunar Section through the turbulent years of the 1960s, a period when the whole nature of lunar science
changed under the impact of the Orbiter and Apollo programmes.

It was 1970 that saw the first "Rockfest," formally known as the Lunar Science
Conference, convened at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston to present analyses of the pieces of the moon brought to earth by the Apollo astronauts.
