SELMA, a scientific mission to the Moon proposed as ESA M5 mission candidate
SELMA (Surface, Environment, and Lunar Magnetic Anomalies) is a mission
to investigate the lunar environment and surface interactions, proposed as
a ESA's M5 mission candidate. The mission SELMA is lead of IRF Kiruna.
In this talk we presentation the science of SELMA and the suggested SELMA mission configuration.
SELMA science questions are:
â€˘ What is the origin of water on the Moon?
â€˘ How do the â€śvolatile cyclesâ€ť on the Moon work?
â€˘ How do the lunar mini-magnetospheres work?
â€˘ What is the influence of dust on the lunar environment and surface?
â€˘ unique combination of remote sensing via UV, IR, and energetic neutral atoms and local
measurements of plasma, exospheric gasses, and dust;
â€˘ impact experiment to investigate volatile content in the soil of the permanently shadowed area
of the Shackleton crater;
â€˘ impact probe to sound the Reiner-Gamma mini-magnetosphere and its interaction with the
