Current Issue: December 2021
The December EXPLORER is our Astrogeology Issue. We dig into some recent and ongoing robotic studies of two C-type near-Earth asteroids, Ryugu and Bennu, and NASA’s own Kathryn Stack provides a summary of the progress so far of the ongoing Perseverance mission to Mars. We also have some coverage of the new Big Tech policy of “protecting” users from “climate change disinformation” and its ramifications for scientists’ ability to engage in public discourse. We also have some coverage of the expected roles of super-giant conventional oil fields, as well as geothermal, in the energy mix of the future.
