The Moon’s rugged surface gives astronomers ample evidence of its violent past and clues to its formation. This
institute will help students understand the dynamic processes that shaped the Moon’s surface over the eons.
Students will explore geological features of the moon, such as crater morphology, regolith, mountains, and rilles,
and will examine various rock types in relation to past, present and future lunar processes. Lab work will include
lunar astrophotography, digital image processing, crater simulations, high-speed photography, telescope sessions,
and lunar mapping. Team projects will challenge students to create a model of the Moon’s topography and propose
ways to continue to explore it. During the week, there will be a number of guest speakers, and students will learn
about different theories of lunar formation and the history of lunar exploration.
