        Pre-Apollo era lunar origin theories were closely tied to the origins of the Earth-Moon system. The classic lunar magma ocean (LMO) theory was established near the end of the Apollo era (–) on the basis of fragments of pure anorthosite (Smith et al. ; Wood et al. a) returned by the Apollo 11 ch in the post-Apollo era continues to refine and challenge .   A guide to using this book as an observing tool can be found here: Ron B[ee]'s Personal Observer's View Lunar (card), C.

        It’s a small world. Earlier this evening and for no good reason, I read a half-dozen pages or so on lunar seismicity, from a book entitled, ‘Lunar Science: A Post-Apollo View’, by Stuart Taylor, then of the Lunar Science Institute, Houston. "A comprehensive review of lunar science and evolution from the viewpoint of historical geology, based on data from both photogeologic observations and lunar-sample analysis." View Show abstract.

      As a manned vehicle it would be able to carry a payload of 5, to 10, lb. from a lunar orbiting space station down to the moon’s surface. Unmanned, it might land as much as 70, lb. on the moon to aid in the buildup of a lunar outpost. It could support a manned expedition—three astronauts—as long as 28 days on the lunar surface.

This book will be valuable to lunar scientists as well as to those with an interest in astronomy and space exploration. Show less Lunar Science: A Post-Apollo View: Scientific Results and Insights from the Lunar Samples examines the scientific data and discoveries provided by the manned Apollo lunar missions as they are understood.

Questions of lunar geology are investigated, taking into account the stratigraphy of the lunar surface, stratigraphic and absolute age scales, aspects of lunar topography, the larger lunar craters, central peaks and peak rings, the large ringed basins, maria lava flows, rilles, wrinkle ridges, and low albedo areas.

The surface of the moon is discussed along with the maria, the highlands, and Cited by: 9. Lunar science: a post-Apollo view book Purchase Lunar Science: A Post - Apollo View - 1st Edition.

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Taylor, Stuart Ross, Lunar science: a post-Apollo view. New York, Pergamon Press [] (OCoLC) November, In that book, I was concerned with extracting the evolu- tionary history of the Moon from the great mass of data on the lunar sam- ples.

The story as recorded in Lunar Science: A Post-Apollo View has survived reasonably well. Many new data have appeared, new models have. Lunar Science: A Post-Apollo View: Scientific Results and Insights from the Lunar Samples explains the scientific results and discoveries of the manned Apollo lunar missions as they are understood.

The emphasis is less on sample description and data and more on the interpretative aspects of the study, with the aim of providing a coherent story. The Moon bears substantial natural resources which could be exploited in the future.

Potential lunar resources may encompass processable materials such as volatiles and minerals, along with geologic structures such as lava tubes that together, might enable lunar use of resources on the Moon may provide a means of reducing the cost and risk of lunar exploration and beyond.

Stuart Ross Taylor, Lunar Science: A Post-Apollo View (New York: Pergamon Press, Inc., ), p. David W. Hughes, “Cosmic Dust Influx to the Earth,” Space Research XV,pp. – The geology of the Moon (sometimes called selenology, although the latter term can refer more generally to "lunar science") is quite different from that of Moon lacks a true atmosphere, which eliminates erosion due to weather; it does not have any known form of plate tectonics, it has a lower gravity, and because of its small size, it cooled more rapidly.

Analyses of samples from the Apollo missions suggest that the Moon formed devoid of native water. However, recent observations by Cassini, Deep Impact, Lunar Prospector and Chandrayaan-1 indicate Cited by: 8.

Beattie, came as quite a surprise. I wasn't even aware of this book until last fall. I figured because of its specialized subject that it was probably a fairly obscure footnote to the library of Apollo/5.
