Forward to the Moon: The Science of Exploration
Convener: Gregory Schmidt | Co-conveners: Kristina Gibbs, Brian Day, Wajiha Iqbal, Carolyn van der Bogert

Human and robotic lunar exploration is opening new vistas and scientific understanding as humanity reaches toward the Moon again. In partnership with institutions around the globe, the NASA Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI) focuses on the scientific aspects of exploration as they relate to the Moon and other airless bodies. This session will feature interdisciplinary, exploration-related science centered around the Moon as a human and robotic destination. Scientific plans and results within this session represent a broad spectrum of lunar science investigations of the Moon and its environment as a planetary body, as well as research uniquely enabled from the Moon, from lunar geology to astrophysics, from heliophysics to sample science. Exploration science-related artificial intelligence and machine learning abstracts are encouraged. Graduate students and early career researchers are particularly encouraged to submit for oral presentations.
