Recent results from nasa’s lunar gravity mapping mission grail

Le CEREGE organise à partir de l’année prochaine un cycle de grands séminaires. Ces séminaires ont pour but de réunir un maximum de personnes autour d’un invité de renom.

Speaker

Mark Wieczorek, IPGP Planetary and Space Sciences / University of Sorbonne Paris Cité

The Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory (GRAIL) mission consisted to twin satellites that were placed in orbit about the Moon in 2012. By measuring the distance between these two satellites, the gravity field of the Moon was mapped to an extraordinary precision, revealing the Moon’s interior structure from the crust to the core. Of the gravitational signatures that were measured, the most important are a result of impact craters that range in size from kilometers to thousands of kilometers in diameter.

In this presentation, Mark will provide an overview of the GRAIL mission, and describe the most recent scientific results that have come out of this mission.
