Geologist Eugene Shoemaker shaped his science into a new form, astrogeology and propelled it to the forefront of lunar and planetary exploration. In the face of formidable doubt by advocates of volcanism.he established (with Ralph Baldwin) the impact origin of craters on the Earth and the Moon. He led in alerting society to the danger posed by comets and asteroids. He was surely one of the 20th century's leading planetary scientists.
