Mysteries of the Moon: What We Still Don’t Know and What We’ll Achieve With Artemis

April 22 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM

FREE and OPEN to ALL. Junior Academy members, middle and high school students welcome and encouraged to attend. Space is limited. Registration required. CLICK the orange Event Information button below to REGISTER! Zoom link to join sent with confirmation email immediately after registering..

Featured Speaker: Jeff Gillis-Davis, Ph.D., Associate Research Professor of Physics, Department of Physics, Washington University in St. Louis and the McDonnell Center for the Space Sciences; Principal Investigator, The Interdisciplinary Consortium for Evaluating Volatile Origins (ICE Five-O), NASA Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI)

How did Earth get its Moon? Why does its surface brightness vary? We've been to the Moon, why should we go back? For 50 years or more, people have asked these questions. Data and samples from the Apollo missions helped solve many of these mysteries. However, there are still questions that have been left unanswered—and even many more that arose as a result of the Apollo samples and subsequent robotic mission to the Moon. Astronomer and physicist, Jeffrey Gillis-Davis, presents some of these novel questions and describes how he and faculty at Washington University perform research to answer them.
