First International Planetary Cave Research Workshop: Implications for Astrobiology, Climate, Detection, and Exploration; Carlsbad, New Mexico, 25–28 October 2011 With the advent of high-resolution spatial imaging, the idea of caves on other planets has moved from the pages of science fiction into the realm of hard-core science—complete with hypotheses, models, experiments, and observational data. Recently acquired data from spacecraft, together with terrestrial analogs and numerical models, are providing new insights into caves on Earth as well as caves on other terrestrial planetary bodies (e.g., Moon, Mars, and Titan).
