Previously unmapped Apollo 16 subsatellite magnetometer data collected at low altitudes over the lunar near side are presented. Medium-amplitude magnetic anomalies exist over the Fra Mauro and Cayley Formations (primary and secondary basin ejecta emplaced 3.8 to 4.0 billion years ago) but are nearly absent over the maria and over the craters Copernicus,(More)
Photomosaic of lunar near side, probably the most frequently used lunar chart, published by the U.S. Air Force (xc rc) in November 1962 (LEM I-A, jd ed.). Mare Imbrium, Mare Serenitatis, Mare Nectaris, and other nearl y circular volcanic maria are bordered by arcuate mountain ranges belonging to impact basins. e This book is printed on acid-fr ee, archival(More)
Introduction: To fully leverage the fleet of new spacecraft missions being sent to the Moon, the rapidly increasing volume of data needs to be integrated with the Apollo-era data that provided our first, modern assessment of the Moon. To facilitate that comparison, Apollo data needs to be rendered in formats compatible with modern techniques. The aim of(More)
NASA's New Horizons spacecraft has revealed the complex geology of Pluto and Charon. Pluto's encounter hemisphere shows ongoing surface geological activity centered on a vast basin containing a thick layer of volatile ices that appears to be involved in convection and advection, with a crater retention age no greater than ~10 million years.
