RSLab on International Press with a Radar for Detecting Lunar Lava Tubes

The paper “Detection of Lunar Lava Tubes with Orbiting Radar Sounder Systems,” by L. Carrer, C. Gerekos and L. Bruzzone (presented at the European Planetary Science Congress 201, Riga, Latvia) has raised large interest not only in the scientific community but also on the international press. The paper presents a study for an orbiting radar sounder for the detection of subsurface lava tubes on the Moon. Lunar lava tubes detection is considered a crucial step toward the construction of a possible base on the Moon.
