Science and Exploration of Phobos and Deimos

September 14, 2015 @ 12:00 pm PST - 1:30 pm PST

The “Science and Exploration of Phobos and Deimos” series was jointly organized and led by SSERVI teams at University of Central FL (CLASS) and Brown University/MIT (SEEED) with many SSERVI-affiliated institutions participating. A major goal was to identify major outstanding questions and scientific and exploration goals for robotic and human exploration of Phobos and Deimos.

The 13 weekly seminars with lectures given by leaders in the field included opportunities for questions and discussion. The lectures were accessible through Adobe Connect in real-time and were recorded for on-line reference.
