Hello, Earthlings! I’m back from an exciting planet-hopping trip that landed me at the 50th Lunar and Planetary Science Conference (LPSC) down in Houston, Texas!
Would like to dedicate this blog-post to the awesome graduate students from the University of Arkansas Space Center and all their amazing research!
Here’s some of what the Space Center got to present last week:
-Venusian mineralogy and lead-based minerals (S. Port)
-Martian Swiss cheese terrain (P. Knightly)
-Haughton Crater as an Analogue to Martian permafrost conditions (P. Knightly)
-Martian salts through experiments (R. Slank)
-Europa as a potential habitable world (A. Yazdani)
-Titan liquids pertaining to lakes (K. Farnsworth)
-Titan evaporitic minerals at the shorelines (E. Czaplinski)
-Titan organic materials in the laboratory setting (K. Dzurilla)
-Pluto experimentation and glacial dynamics (C. Ahrens)
Lots of cool insight into some awesome projects coming up, so stay tuned to Universe Playpen for more exciting space science!
