Participation in lunar data analysis


  • Anonymous


Since 1963 three Rangers, an Explorer, five Surveyors, five Lunar Orbiters, and nine Apollo lunar missions have acquired a vast amount of new scientific data. Encouraging and impressive as this new information is, it represents only a beginning of the analysis and assimilation of the data. New information will continue to be received from the Apollo Lunar Surface Experiment Packages, the Lunar Laser Ranging Experiment, and the orbiting subsatellite. During the next decade efforts must be devoted to the systematic analysis and interpretation of this growing storehouse of data.
