Seminar Abstract:

Over the last 50 years, LASP has sent space experiments to all the planets and Pluto. Building on traditional strengths in UV spectroscopy, LASP has built instruments for Mariner, Pioneer Venus, Voyager, MESSENGER, Galileo, Cassini, Mars-96, New Horizons and MAVEN. Dr. Esposito will highlight these planetary investigations, along with their discoveries and insights. He will reminisce about the key roles played by LASP members, and will speculate on the future of planetary exploration and possible future LASP contributions.
