Moon Rocks and Minerals compiles the important findings that have resulted from the first study of the Apollo 11 lunar rocks, including preliminary data on Apollo 12 lunar samples. The compiled study samples and proposals on the lunar rocks are categorized into four general categories— mineralogy and petrology, chemical and isotope analyses, physical properties, and bioscience and organic geochemistry. In these categories, this book specifically discusses the types and mineralogy of lunar rocks and soils; chemistry of samples brought by Apollo 11 and 12; and experimental studies and origin of the lavas. The age of the lunar rocks, isotope studies, cosmic ray, and solar wind effects and origin of the moon are also deliberated. This text also covers the examination of lunar samples for the presence of biochemical organic compounds in the general context of the possibility of extraterrestrial life. This publication is beneficial to scientists of disciplines such as geochemistry, cosmochemistry, mineralogy, and geophysics.

Astronomy and Astrophysics Abstracts, which has appeared in semi-annual volumes since 1969, is de voted to the recording, summarizing and indexing of astronomical publications throughout the world. It is prepared under the auspices of the International Astronomical Union (according to a resolution adopted at the 14th General Assembly in 1970). Astronomy and Astrophysics Abstracts aims to present a comprehensive documentation of literature in all fields of astronomy and astrophysics. Every effort will be made to ensure that the average time interval between the date of receipt of the original literature and publication of the abstracts will not exceed eight months. This time interval is near to that achieved by monthly abstracting journals, com pared to which our system of accumulating abstracts for about six months offers the advantage of greater convenience for the user. Volume 6 contains literature published in 1971 and received before March 15, 1972; some older liter ature which was received late and which is not recorded in earlier volumes is also included.

Lunar Science: A Post-Apollo View: Scientific Results and Insights from the Lunar Samples explains the scientific results and discoveries of the manned Apollo lunar missions as they are understood. The emphasis is less on sample description and data and more on the interpretative aspects of the study, with the aim of providing a coherent story of the evolution of the moon and its origin as revealed by the lunar samples and the Apollo missions. This text has seven chapters; the first of which provides a historical background of efforts to study the moon prior to the Apollo missions, including lunar photogeologic mapping and direct exploration by spacecraft. Attention then turns to the Apollo missions and the lunar samples collected, beginning with Apollo 11 that landed on the moon on July 20, 1969 and followed by more missions. The next chapter describes the geology of the moon, with emphasis on craters, central peaks and peak rings, the large ringed basins, rilles, and maria lava flows. The reader is also introduced to the nature of the lunar surface material, the maria basalts, the highlands, and the moon’s interior. This book concludes with a discussion on the evidence that has been gathered by the Apollo missions that offers insights into the origin and evolution of the moon. An epilogue reflects on the usefulness of manned space flight. This book will appeal to lunar scientists as well as to those with an interest in astronomy and space exploration.
