  • Anonymous


A conference covering all aspects of natural satellites of the solar system will be held June 18–21, 1974, at Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, under International Astronomical Union and COSPAR sponsorship.

IAU Colloquium 28 will bring together specialists in the various fields of satellite astronomy: celestial mechanics, physical properties, origin, and evolution. Invited review papers will be given by leading authorities; these papers will compile, discuss, and interpret the masses of data that have been accumulated recently and will then attempt to develop a broad understanding of the origin and subsequent evolution of the natural satellites.
