- Abstracts for next month's Lunar and Planetary Science Conference were released on Friday. I summarized a few of the abstracts for some of the posters that will be presented at the conference, including a New Frontiers concept study, a global geologic map, and a regional map covering Shamshu and Hi'iaka.
