An Overview of the NASA FINESSE (Field Investigations to Enable Solar System Science & Exploration) Project

Dr. Jennifer L. Heldmann
Research Scientist, NASA Ames Research Center

This talk will present an overview of the Science and Exploration activities being conducted by the NASA FINESSE (Field Investigations to Enable Solar System Science & Exploration) team. FINESSE is a part of NASA’s SSERVI (Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute). FINESSE focuses on understanding volcanics and impacts as primary geologic processes altering the surface of the Moon, asteroids, and other planetary bodies. We conduct fieldwork at Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve in Idaho, USA, and at the West Clearwater Impact Structure in northern Canada. We also investigate the most effect methods for both humans and robots to conduct scientific field investigations on other planetary surfaces. Today we will discuss the science and exploration research, and also focus on our education and public outreach activities, with special emphasis on how teachers and students can get involved with the exciting FINESSE project!
