2007 Lunar and Dust Regolith Simulant Workshop - Oct 10-12

The Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) In Situ Resource Utilization (ISRU) and Dust Project conducted a Lunar and Dust Regolith Simulant Workshop in Huntsville, Alabama, on October 10 – 12, 2007. The focus of this workshop was on Lunar and Dust Regolith Simulants Development and Characterization and User Needs Assessments. MSFC manages these activities under the Exploration Technology Development Program (ETDP) ISRU Project for Jerry Sanders at Johnson Space Center (JSC) and the ETDP Dust Management Project for Mark Hyatt at Glenn Research Center (GRC). Topics of the workshop included:

  • ISRU and Dust Projects lunar simulant roles and objectives.
  • Current status of lunar dust simulants and lunar regolith simulants development and characterization.
  • Customers’ needs including types of simulants, quantities, and dates.
  • Current status of data collection and analyses of lunar dust and lunar regolith properties.
