Planetary Cartography Lab
The Planetary Cartography Lab is located in GRL 238, and hosts computing and software resources for mapping, geospatial analysis, and remote sensing for all planetary bodies. Equipment includes an 86" SMART Board interactive display, large format 2D & 3D printers, and VR headsets.
Space Resources Lab
We also have equipment in the shared Space Resources Lab in GRL 140: this includes a Microtrac SYNC particle size and shape analyzer, and instruments and materials for synthesizing and analyzing high-fidelity regolith simulants.
Artemis Base Maps — A set of mapping products for prospective landing sites for the Artemis missions
Eat Like a Martian — We’re exploring food produced by ISRU, and food logistics for space missions
Lunar Mining & Landing Sites — A variety of resources and tools, including "Ice Prospecting: Your Guide to Getting Rich on the Moon"
Planetary Intelligence — Substack where we write mostly about space resources and development
Planetary Simulant Database — We created and maintain the Planetary Simulant Database, a free resource with data on historic and current regolith simulants
