ABOUT THIS SITE
SOCIETY FOR APPLIED SPECTROSCOPY
The Society for Applied Spectroscopy is highlighting the scientists behind the science and groundbreaking spectroscopy and imaging instruments on Mars. These instruments are bringing us new information from Mars to unravel mysteries of its past and help us learn how to live there in the future.
This site will highlight different scientists involved in the spectroscopy happening on Mars, and the interpretation and analysis here on Earth. These scientists will tell us how they got to where they are, where they are going, and give insights into the challenges of doing science on another planet. To keep up with our stories, subscribe and stay in the know when new blog posts and pages go live.
The Society for Applied Spectroscopy is a nonprofit organization formed to advance and disseminate knowledge and information concerning the art and science of spectroscopy, and other allied sciences, to advance the professional standing and growth of the Society and its members, to coordinate cooperative endeavors of its individual members and sections, and to promote and maintain a close bond among its members.
