For the third consecutiveyear, the Soviet Union is sending

a delegationof space scientiststo the conferenceto present results

from their own lunar missions, their Venus planetaryprobes and some recent meteorite crater examination.

The conferences,begun in 1970, were originallyused to share

the knowledgegained from the recentlyobtained lunar samples. The

first six Lunar Science Conferenceswere almost entirely involvedwith

lunar studies. More recently, lunar researchhas become increasingly

importantfor helping to understandthe other planets of the solar

system, and the last two conferences,in 1976 and 1977, includedmuch

more informationabout comparativestudies of such other worlds as

Mercry, Vens, Mars, and th asteroids. The name of this year's con-

ferencehas been changed to "Lnar and Planetary"to reflect the con-

tinuing trend for combinedstudies in planetaryexploration.

This year's conferenceis separated into seven main topics,

with sessionsoccurringsimultaneouslythroughoutthe week. The :sessions

are entitled: Constraintson Structure,Compositionand History of

Planetary Interiors;Characteristicsand Movement of Material on Lunar,

Planetaryand AsteroidalSurfaces;Characterizationand Evolution of

VolcanicLandforms;Characterizationand Evolutionof Planetary Crusts;

Nature and Effects of Impact Processes;Extraterrestria Materials;

Solar, Interplanetary,InterstellarProbes; and Earliest History of

the Solar System.
