MITM7

Laboratory experiments in support of planets and satellites observations and space missions (sample return, analogs, analytical workflow etc.).
Conveners: Giovanni Poggiali, Alessandro Pisello | Co-conveners: Sébastien Besse, John Robert Brucato, Maeva Millan

Planets and their satellites are target of intense space exploration by in-situ measurements, proximity remote sensing or ground observations. The surface of these bodies exhibits a great mineralogical variety that can be eventually modified by past or present geological activities. Some of them also show also presence of organics and volatile material that can interact with the mineral substrate to increase the chemical complexity.

Laboratorial studies are pivotal for space exploration, since they provide us the key to understand what we observe remotely. These studies can be focused on directly interpreting remote sensing data or on studying more in detail the physical, chemical, and geological processes to help us interpret what we observe today on the surface of these bodies.

In this session, we invite submissions that focus on laboratory study of rocky surfaces regarding both planets within the Solar System and exoplanets: studies of mineral and chemical analogues, physical processes, studies of atmospheres and interaction between rocky surfaces and organic/volatile compounds.
Moreover, we also invite contributions on new measurement apparatus, innovative protocols and laboratory studies in support of ongoing or imminent planetary space missions such as Mars2020 Perseverance rover and MSR campaigning, BepiColombo, ExoMars Rosalind Franklin, JWST observations as well as future planned and proposed missions to study planets, exoplanets and their satellites.
