Please check back soon for more updates on this year's Exploration Science Forum!


The 2019 Exploration Science Forum will feature scientific discussions about the Moon and other exploration targets of interest, such as near-Earth asteroids and the moons of Mars. Participants will learn about recent mission results and in-depth analyses of science and exploration studies that reflect the direction of the Agency and community. Dedicated side conferences for students and young professionals, along with public engagement discussions, will be interwoven among science topics.

This year, SSERVI is excited to announce that on July 24th, as a part of the Forum, we will visit the USS Hornet on the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Splashdown. Transportation to/from the Hornet will be provided by SSERVI. Please indicate your interest on the registration form.
