After founding the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory at the University of Arizona inKuiper and his team helped to identify landing sites on the Moon for the Apollo program, among other important work in planetary science.

Kuiper led the lab until his death in One of the buildings at LPL is named in his honor. Both the Steward Observatory Mt. Lemmon 40 and inch telescopes were developed at The University of Arizona's Lunar and Planetary Laboratory optics shop by optician Robbie Wayland. They are described in his book "Optics of the Cassegrain" (Carlton Press Corporation, December ).

Scientists who have been pivotal in the life of The University of Arizona's remarkable Lunar and Planetary Laboratory over the past five decades are also talented raconteurs. Their stories are compiled in a new history project, excerpts of which are published on the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory, or LPL, Web site.

LPL Director Michael J. Drake. The Lunar and Planetary Laboratory (LPL) is a research center for planetary science located in Tucson, Arizona. It is also a graduate school, constituting the Department of Planetary Sciences at the University of Arizona.

Description University of Arizona"s Lunar and Planetary Laboratory PDF

LPL is one of the world's largest programs dedicated exclusively to planetary science in a university setting. Gerard P. Kuiper () is considered by many as the father of modern planetary science.

In Kuiper established the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory (LPL), first as part of the Institute of Atmospheric Physics and later as a separate unit at the University of Arizona.

Mission Statement. The Gamma Ray Spectrometer (GRS) is a significant component of NASA's Mars Surveyor Program.

This is an ongoing initiative to explore Mars through scientific instruments aboard orbiters, landers, and rovers. GRS is really a suite of three instruments designed to analyze the chemical composition of the Martian surface. UArizona Lunar and Planetary Laboratory, Tucson, AZ.

He is a member of the imaging science team on the Cassini–Huygens mission to Saturn, co-investigator on the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbit Alma mater: Arizona State University. An international team led by Teddy Karet a, a doctoral student at the University of Arizona's Lunar and Planetary Laboratory, investigated () Phaethon, a bizarre asteroid that sometimes behaves like a comet, and found it even more enigmatic than previously thought.

Among them was a small group of researchers at the University of Arizona. The team imaged and mapped the lunar surface, which allowed them to understand the moon’s geology and NASA to choose landing sites for future robotic and Apollo missions.

Gerard Kuiper, the father of modern-day planetary science, led the team and established the Lunar.
