LEAG 2009 DeBrief - Out of the Cradle

"Wow! That was a mind-bending conference. Clearly LRO is coming into full flower, its instruments providing solid and fascinating results."

With that hopeful statement, Ken Murphy of Out of the Cradle begins an excellent summary of the 2009 Annual Meeting of the Lunar Exploration Analysis Group (LEAG) in Houston.

Ken himself admits he was "on vacation." While his report is interesting, but not a headline-making report mostly about using his visit to Houston to fatten OTC's Lunar Library, including a visit to the area's Half-Price-Books.

I'm a HUGE fan of the Half-Price-Books stores, and spent an inordinate amount of time at the store the used to be on Camp Bowie in southwest Fort Worth, many years ago. But I sure would not have missed Anthony Coleprete's higher-order discussion of the LCROSS results.

As further debriefs come in, we will happy to post these.
