Planetary and Space Science, published 15 times per year, is a peer reviewed, scientific journal established in 1959. It is currently focuses on publishing original research articles along with short communications (letters). The main topic is solar system processes which encompasses multiple areas of the natural sciences. The published research is derived from both ground-based and space-borne instrumentation of solar system processes. Numerical simulations of solar system processes are also conducted at ground based facilities or on-board space platforms. The editor in chief is Rita Schulz (The Netherlands). It is published by Elsevier. Research that involves planetary and space sciences involves many disciplines. Celestial mechanics is part of these studies, as this science includes understanding the dynamic evolution of the solar system, relativistic effects, among other areas of analysis and consideration. Cosmochemistry is also part of the published research in this journal. Cosmochemistry in this instance, includes all aspects of the initial physical and chemical formation along with the subsequent evolution of the solar system pertaining to these physical and chemical

Curiosity travels through ancient glaciers on Mars

3,500 million years ago the Martian crater Gale, through which the NASA rover Curiosity is currently traversing, was covered with glaciers, mainly over its central mound. Very cold liquid water also flowed through its rivers ...

Lichen on Mars

Humans cannot hope to survive life on Mars without plenty of protection from the surface radiation, freezing night temperatures and dust storms on the red planet. So they could be excused for marveling at humble Antarctic ...

Is it time to return to the Moon?

Humans haven’t set foot on the Moon -- or any other world outside of our own, for that matter -- since Cernan and Schmitt departed the lunar surface on December 14, 1972. That will make 40 years on that date this coming ...
