The Program and Organizing Committees of the International Symposium “Lunar Exploration and Space Technology Heritage” extends invitation to the event and warmly welcome participants and guests. Sessions Lunar Exploration, Space Technology Heritage, and Summer Space School are open to all interested scientists and young students. We wish to everyone a pleasant stay in Kazan, Russia.
Session “Lunar Exploration” August 25-30, 2016
Session “Space Technology Heritage” August 27-28, 2016
Summer School “Space Science”. August 25-27, 2016
The goal of the Symposium is to discuss state of art of the Moon studies and to advance UNESCO Thematic Initiative Astronomy and the World Heritage Including Technology Related to Space Exploration. It is intended to exchange scientific ideas on lunar exploration for years to come and to discuss approaches of using innovative technologies. Robust robotic missions are set in the roadmap towards human missions to the Moon and beyond, synergy of both programs underlies the future strategy with international partnership. Historically, solar system exploration began with space flights to the Moon enabling the great capabilities of humans to explore outer space with innovative technologies. UNESCO Thematic Initiative on astronomy heritage included space technology as an important segment of space endeavors. This project technological heritage is addressed as a logic extension of the UNESCO Initiative because it is intrinsically related with the most important breakthroughs in space science rooted in space technology. The purpose of the Symposium is to consolidate international efforts towards recognition of this project importance and to exchange ideas of how to develop a consistent approach to the legacy of space facilities and human artifacts.
In framework of the session Lunar Exploration a broad scope of scientific areas will be discussed including: Origin, structure, and evolution of the Moon;Science on the Moon and from the Moon; Lunar geophysics and geochemistry; Abundance of volatiles in polar regions; Lunar geodesy and topography; Gravitational, magnetic fields and dichotomies of the Moon; Lunar ephemeris and dynamics; Micro-arcsecond astrometry, free and forced lunar librations; Analytical and numerical methods and structural analysis; Space missions and future prospective; Synergy of robotic and piloted flights; Perspectives of the futurelunar infrastructure deployment and resources utilization..
In framework of the session Space Technology Heritage the most remarkable achievements in the lunar space exploration will be discussed including the 55-anniversary of the first landing on the Moonsurface and the first artificial satellite of the Moon launch. These and other historical milestones are rooted in the great progress of space science and technology which paved the road to the great breakthroughs in the human knowledge about space environment. Discussions will address provisional pathways of tangible/intangible objects of space technology heritage aiming to enhance the links between science, education and culture.
