Silver, Going for Gold
image from Selenology Today
The silver anniversary of anything is a significant achievement of perseverance, and a reason to publically celebrate. The Geologic Lunar Research group started a new lunar journal, Selenology Today, in 2006, and now the 25th issue has appeared. Editor Raf Lena and the editorial board of Marie Teresa Bregante, Jim Phillips, Christian Wöhler and I have defied the odds by continuing to publish issue after issue, each containing scientifically new results. These same people have published a series of papers in professional journals that have become the standard works on lunar domes. And ST has provided an avenue for others – including a number of LPOD contributors - to see in print their first scientific publication about the Moon. I congratulate the ST editorial team and encourage LPOD readers to undertake some research and join the ST family of contributors. I look forward to the next 25 issues.
