On Lunar Volatiles and Their Importance to Resource Utilization and Lunar Science
Panel Selection: Inner Planets: Mercury, Venus, and the Moon.
Institution: Columbia University
We discuss recent, compelling evidence for major lunar volatiles not necessarily found in polar permanently-shadowed crater cold traps, but originating from the deep interior. We also discuss programs underway to study lunar volatiles, which unfortunately fall far short of the NRC''s SCEM goals.
