Planetary Science

Planetary Science has had a longstanding stake in space exploration through the development of technologies to support robotic and human missions led by NASA and ESA. Earth scientists play a role in defining key science objectives for the missions and the technologies necessary to carry them out through studies of extraterrestrial samples and impact craters on Earth.

The following faculty members have recently initiated projects in planetary science:
