Registration is now open for the 5th Annual Lunar and Small Bodies Graduate Conference (LunGradCon 2014) to be held on Sunday, July 20, 2014 at the NASA Ames Research Center, preceding the NASA Exploration Science Forum (ESF). With the expanded interests of the Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI), the scope of this year’s LunGradCon is also expanding to include both lunar and small bodies science.

LunGradCon provides an opportunity for grad students and early-career postdocs to present their research on lunar and small body science in a low-stress, friendly environment, being critiqued only by their peers.

In addition to oral presentations, the conference presents opportunities for professional development and networking with fellow grad students and postdocs, as well as senior members of SSERVI. A limited amount of funding will be provided for travel and lodging costs. The deadline for registration and abstract submission is June 13th 2014, 11:59 PM PDT.

  • NLSI’s LUNAR team tests Kapton film for radio telescopes

    525

    The Dark Ages Lunar Interferometer (DALI) with polyimide foil and embedded low frequency dipoles will study the early Universe.NLSI’s LUNAR team is testing of a piece of Kapton film at the University of Colorado at Boulder under a vacuum of about 10^-7 torr. The objective of this month long test is to simulate the lunar conditions that the Kapton film will experience during a year on the moon. The vacuum chamber will be cycled between -150 and 100 degrees Celscius with each hot or cold cycle lasting 24 hours.
