Graduate Planetary Seminar

Fall 2018

Planetary Analogs

This seminar examines the ways in which we can use terrestrial analogues to inform our understanding and exploration of the solar system.  The course is divided into three broad topics: (1) planetary analogues for scientific understanding, (2) logistics of robotic exploration, and (3) preparing for human exploration.  The class will culminate with a discussion of the future plans of NASA and private ventures to send humans to Mars.
