#GSA125 and Planetary Geology
In the lifetimes of many people reading this post the solar system as we know it has undergone a remarkable transformation.
A hundred years ago, outside of the Moon, practically every body in the solar system was a point of light only viewable through a telescope. There were some attempts to draw features of Mars suggesting canals, but otherwise, everything from Jupiter to Pluto was just a point of light somewhere.
In the early 1960s, the first real geologic map of a body in the solar system was made: the Moon. It grew out the Apollo program; to send humans to the moon, scientists like Gene Shoemaker constructed basic maps to give some idea of where the spacecraft were actually heading.
Since then, these points of light throughout the solar system have turned into bodies known by the rules of geology. Stratigraphy, geologic maps, uniformitarianism, and even in some cases like Mars, sedimentary structures and cross bedding.
Today is the opening day of the annual conference of the Geological Society of America, the GSA meeting, taking place in Vancouver. Each year, the Society names a prominent scientist as the Organization’s President and he or she gives a presidential address on the state of the organization and their science. This year’s President is Harry (Hap) McSween from the University of Tennessee, a figure in many planetary exploration missions over the last 30 years. He was one of the first scientists to recognize that we had meteorites from Mars, and he also has an asteroid named after him.
Dr. McSween’s talk today is about how the science of the planets has moved from one involving astronomy to one involving the rules of geology. Geology has taken over these planets, from understanding craters on Mercury to sedimentary rocks on Mars to cross cutting relationships on Europa.
Next summer, the New Horizons spacecraft will fly past the first Kuiper Belt Object humanity will ever see up close, Pluto. When that happens, it will go from an object understood as pixels to an object understood through geologic provinces, maps, and stratigraphy. Today our telescopes are even beginning to understand the atmospheres of planets outside of our solar system. This is another realm of geology, done outside of our own planet.
