Australia SSERVI Team Capabilities and Research Interests:

Principal Investigator Phil Bland (Curtin Univ., Perth) and Deputy Director Dr. Marc Norman (Australian National Univ., Canberra) include colleagues from a number of institutions across the country and representing a wide breadth of expertise from Australia’s planetary science community. The proposal was selected for Affiliate Membership after it was determined that complementary research activities will help NASA achieve its goals for human exploration of the solar system.

Specifically, Australia offers scientific and technological expertise in understanding Solar System origins and evolution, lunar science, meteoritics and small bodies, asteroid differentiation, planetary mission science and technology, regolith processes on asteroids and the Moon, advanced analytical techniques, fireball observations and orbital dynamics, and links with the exoplanet and stellar evolution astrophysical communities.
