Dr. Maria T. Zuber, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences
Since before the first single-celled organisms, the Moon has illuminated the night sky. Although the Moon is our nearest neighbor, it is far enough away that landing on it represented the pinnacle of human achievement. Studying the Moon helps us learn how other rocky planets formed and developed. Dr. Zuber will discuss our evolving understanding of the Moon from GRAIL, a dual-spacecraft mission that mapped the lunar interior from crust to core.
Co-hosted by the Carnegie Institution for Science’s Department of Terrestrial Magnetism and The National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
The event is free and open to the public. The lecture will last approximately one hour. No tickets are required and seating is on a first-come, first served basis.
