NASA’s Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI) will host the second annual Exploration Science Forum (ESF) July 21-23, 2015, at NASA’s Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California.
This year’s forum will feature scientific discussions of exploration targets of interest, including the moon, near-Earth asteroids and the moons of Mars. Science sessions will focus on recent mission results and in-depth analyses of science and exploration studies. Dedicated side conferences include a graduate student conference around the same topics, and an event for the Next Generation Lunar Scientists and Engineers, a young professionals group will coincide with the ESF.
Forum attendees will have the opportunity to experience the Lunar Mapping and Modeling Portal, an integrated suite of lunar and planetary mapping and modeling tools and products that support exploration and science activities, as well as community outreach. Users can navigate a tabletop touch screen to experience a 3D surface flyover of the moon and other target bodies of interest.
Registration is FREE and attendance is encouraged.
