Stratigraphy and geologic history of Mercury
The geologic evolution of Mercury based on the Mariner-10 mission data is discussed. As reconstructed through photogeological analysis of global geologic relations of rock-stratigraphic units,

Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Overview: The Instrument Suite and Mission
Abstract NASA’s Lunar Precursor Robotic Program (LPRP), formulated in response to the President’s Vision for Space Exploration, will execute a series of robotic missions that will pave the way for
Beginning and end of lunar mare volcanism
Mare volcanism on the Moon is commonly attributed to an important but relatively short-lived epoch of internal heating after 3,900 Myr BP but before about 2,500 Myr BP (refs 1, 2). Although some
Distribution and modes of occurrence of lunar anorthosite
[1] We have utilized telescopic near-infrared spectra and multispectral images of the Moon provided by the Galileo and Clementine missions to determine the distribution and modes of occurrence of
Volcanism on Mars
More than 15 years of planetary exploration of Mars have given insight into the geologic processes that have shaped its surface. The newly acquired Viking data have shown that volcanism is one of the
The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Miniature Radio Frequency (Mini-RF) Technology Demonstration
The Miniature Radio Frequency (Mini-RF) system is manifested on the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) as a technology demonstration and an extended mission science instrument. Mini-RF represents a
