Planetary Science Research Discoveries | PSRD
Enlightening Inquisitive Minds

Welcome to the PSRD website, a place to learn about the fascinating discoveries being made by planetary scientists. What are we finding out about the building blocks of planets and the building blocks of life? What's in an asteroid, in stardust, in a comet? Here you can discover for yourself the excitement of doing science and finding answers to these and more questions, through the eyes of today's researchers. We take to heart NASA's emphasis on communication and education. A goal of this website is "Educational Excellence," specifically, to "... inspire America's students, create learning opportunities, and enlighten inquisitive minds." We explore the science questions that researchers are actively pursuing, and explain how the answers are discovered and what they mean.

PSRD is a dynamic website covering hot topics in cosmochemistry and planetary sciences. Cosmochemistry is an interdisciplinary science that overlaps with geochemistry, geology, astronomy, astrophysics, and geophysics to discover the materials and fundamental processes in the solar nebula and our Solar System. These sciences give us complementary ways of looking at our origins by addressing questions such as, How did the Sun and planets form? Where did we come from? Cosmochemistry is a careful examination of the building blocks of the cosmos, and will play an important role in our ability to develop local resources on the Moon, Mars, and asteroids, essential to sustained human presence in space.

The PSRD website features Headline articles illustrated with graphics and animations, pdf versions for easier printing, short slide summaries of articles, CosmoSparks reports, a comprehensive archive, news links, glossary, search engine, subscription service, rss feed, social-media sharing links, and comments page. The Headline article of the month is shown on our homepage and all the articles and reports from our entire collection are available in the archive. Use the navigation links on the page tops or bottoms to move throughout the website.

We began working on PSRD in September, 1996. The first articles were posted in October, 1996. In February, 2001 we moved to our current address: www.psrd.hawaii.edu. In mid-2010 we reviewed the old legacy HTML originally intended for the very first web browsers and updated the site with a custom search engine and new design using current web standards and best practices. We gratefully acknowledge NASA's Cosmochemistry Program for funding our first 20 years and NASA's Planetary Science Division for ongoing support. This is an active project and additional resources are added as needed.

Who We Are

Development, operation, content, and overall editorial management of the PSRD website are provided by cofounders G. Jeffrey Taylor and Linda M.V. Martel. We are planetary geoscientists at the Hawai'i Institute of Geophysics and Planetology (HIGP), School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST) at the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa (UH).

Jeff Taylor is the recipient of the 2008 Carl Sagan Medal awarded by the Division for Planetary Sciences (DPS) of the American Astronomical Society–for excellence in public communication of planetary science. See the SOEST Press Release for more details about this wonderful honor.

Jeff also received the 2011 Shoemaker Distinguished Lunar Scientist Award, presented by the NASA Lunar Science Institute–in recognition of his significant scientific contributions and leadership roles. Read more about his views on science and career advice in Jeff's Q&A with NASA's Solar System Exploration.

Jeff and Ron Fodor are coauthors of IMPACT! a Kindle eBook novel that tells a story centering around the threat of a big Earth-crossing asteroid that is heading right at us.

Grenfell’s long shadow
FOR two weeks, the families of those who died came to tell their stories to the Grenfell Tower Inquiry. The father who was flying home from Egypt while his family burned; the parents whose daughter had moved from Italy to London to make a life; the young man who stood and watched the flames as his mother and sister were trapped inside.

Forest City | Fitness and ecological relation | Ben Denham
When health insurance companies in the United States started offering discounts to customers who logged a certain number of steps on their personal activity tracker, artists Tega Brain and Surya Mattu decided people should be given an alternative to doing actual exercise. The solution was Unfit Bits, a series of simple hacks —  like strapping a Fitbit to a metronome or a dog — that allow users to log physical activity without actually having to do it. Unfit Bits promised a free lunch to those seeking a discount on their health insurance.
