    A.L. Bush, in Encyclopedia of Materials: Science and Technology, (a) Perlite. Perlite, obsidian, and pitchstone are volcanic glasses that differ in water content: obsidian, less than 2% H 2 O; perlite, 2–5%; and pitchstone, more than 5%. The general range of composition (Bush , p. ) is 70–75% SiO 2, and about 10–15% Al 2 O water content is critical to expansion, but. Volcanic glass is unstable and tends to change spontaneously (devitrify) from the glassy to the crystalline state in periods of time that are relatively short by geologic standards; the material takes on a stony appearance due to the presence of minutely crystalline ically ancient glasses are therefore very rare, and most glassy rocks are of Paleogene age or younger (less than.

      The black and orange glasses present in /2 represent pyroclastic deposits, formed by the rapid quenching of molten silicate droplets that were ejected into the lunar atmosphere during the explosive volcanic eruption of ultramafic magmas onto the lunar surface along the rim of mare Serenitatis. The source regions of these magmas may have.   NASA Astromaterials Curation, an integral part of any sample return mission, comprises preparation and allocation of samples for research and education, initial characterization of new samples, and secure storage for the benefit of future generations. Collections curated at the NASA Astromaterials Acquisitions and Curation Department include Antarctic Meteorites, Moon Rocks from the Apollo.

    Lunar volcanic glasses contain a huge amount of information about the lunar interior, in part because of the wide range in their chemical compositions. This compositional difference shows up in the colors of the glasses--red have the highest titanium (about 15 wt% TiO2) and green the lowest (less than 1 wt% TiO2).   1 Introduction. Lunar glasses (Figure 1) were found to be abundant in the Apollo regolith samples, constituting about half of the fines in the first Apollo 11 regolith investigations (LSPET, ).Varieties of impact glass include particles, surface coatings, and porous glassy aggregates, but only studies of glass particles, hereafter called impact glasses, will be discussed herein.

This workshop on lunar mare volcanism was the first since to deal with the major scientific advances that have occurred in this general subject, and the first ever to deal specifically with volcanic glasses.

NLSI Workshop Without Walls: Lunar Volatiles (Part 1) The NASA Lunar Science Institute announces a virtual meeting to present and discuss the latest research regarding volatiles on the Moon. Recent data have revealed volatiles not only in permanently shadowed regions near the lunar poles, but also in near-surface cold traps and as a veneer on.

These glassy materials can be broadly classified into four groups: volcanic glasses, impact glasses, agglutinates, and “other.” At least two materials found in the lunar regolith, water and helium-3, may be important for human settlement.

Measurements from the Orbiter’s Diviner Lunar Radiometer show evidence that the rocks are rich in silica –meaning they’re composed of hardened magma.

The vast majority of lunar volcanic activity took place between 3 – 4 billion years ago, with the commonly accepted end of lunar volcanism being 1 – billion years ago.

Some of the most recent cone, dome, IMP, and TLP activity may date as recently as a. The Lunar Science for Landed Missions workshop was held on 10–12 January, at NASA Ames Research Center and was attended by both lunar scientists and representatives from commercial companies.

The workshop was cosponsored by the Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI) and the Lunar Exploration Analysis Group (LEAG). Back inApollo 15 astronauts orbiting the Moon photographed something very odd.

Researchers called it "Ina," and it looked like the aftermath of a volcanic eruption. There's nothing odd about volcanoes on the Moon, per se. lunar volcanic glasses, and the high pre-eruptive abun-dance of water in melt inclusions from one of these samples, has provided the first definitive evidence for the accretion and retention in the Moon’s interior of one of the most volatile elements in the solar system.

The Workshop on Apollo 16 is held at the LPI. Convened by Odette James and Fred Hörz, the workshop is the first of a series of meetings organized by the Lunar and Planetary Sample Team (LAPST) as part of the Highlands Initiative, an effort aimed at the improved understanding of the early evolution of the lunar crust.

The Lunar and Planetary Sample Team (LAPST), predecessor to CAPTEM, hosted three workshops in the early 's: Workshop on the Origin of Lunar Volcanic Glasses (), Workshop on the Physics and Chemistry of Magma Oceans (), and Workshop on.

The lunar volcanic glass exposed by the first and only scientist to walk on the Moon may be a signal to us, today, that this is what's truly needed if we want to uncover the truths about the rest.

The results of high-pressure and high-temperature laboratory melting experiments on lunar mare basalts and volcanic glasses, along with geochemical evidence and physical modeling, affirm that remelting of the solidified products of a deep magma ocean still provides the best explanation for lunar.
