... to derive the surface backscatter coefficient (σ o ), a measure of the amount of microwave energy scattered back to the spacecraft (Texts S1 and S2 and Fig. S2 in the Supplemental Material 1 ). Changes in Magellan SAR backscatter are predominantly controlled by few-kilometers-scale slopes and centimeter...

... ground- and space-based observatories, many outstanding questions can only be addressed with in situ measurements at Io. Several spacecraft will explore the Jupiter system in the next decade, but their capabilities to investigate Io are limited. A dedicated Io mission is necessary to capitalize on Io’s...

... (mostly CO 2 , with sulfuric acid rain). Venus is Earth’s hellish twin sister. However, there are some similarities. As for the Earth, Venus has also had a very complex geologic history. During the early 1990s, NASA’s Magellan spacecraft imaged the surface of Venus with radar and gave us a panorama...

...W. Zhang Abstract —Methods of deriving FeO and TiO 2 contents from Clementine spacecraft data are discussed, and our own approach is developed for deriving the contents from measurements made by the M 3 instrument on Chandrayaan-1. The density of lunar soil bedrock is modeled based on the derived...

...Sean C. Solomon; Paul K. Byrne The planet Mercury is sufficiently close to the Sun to pose a major challenge to spacecraft exploration. The Mariner 10 spacecraft flew by Mercury three times in 1974–1975 but viewed less than half of the surface. With the three flybys of Mercury by the MESSENGER...
