Profile summary

Professional biography

Space missions enable us to explore other worlds.
And along the way we can learn to understand and improve our own.

Moon@OU is a team of scientists and engineers studying our nearest neighbour in space.

In the lab we analyse meteorites and returned samples to learn about the Moon's history.
And we miniaturise our lab instruments to fly on space missions to study new samples in new places on the Moon.

We're working with international partners to study the water cycle that is happening on the Moon today driven by hot days and cold nights.
And near the lunar South pole we will identify and quantify water ice and other chemicals that may have accumulated over billions of years.

We call this exploration science. To understand the history and processing of water on the Moon is key to understanding the role of water in our solar system's history.
And if we can learn to carefully extract it in useful forms such as hydrogen and oxygen,
it could help sustain a human presence on the Moon and provide the springboard for onward missions to Mars.

Research interests

  • Exospheric Mass Spectrometer EMS / PITMS:  PITMS will fly to the Moon in 2022 as a payload within NASA's Artemis program. We will study how a lunar water cycle might be driven by the hot daytime and cold night-time temperatures of the Moon’s surface. And how over millions of years this may contribute to vast stores of water and other molecules at permanently cold polar regions – molecules that could tell us the history of our own planet and might support human exploration of the solar system. The instrument is led by Dr Barbara Cohen at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. The OU, partnered by RAL Space and funded by ESA, has developed the Exospheric Mass Spectrometer for PITMS and will support its scientific operations throughout the 2-week mission of the Astrobotic Peregrine lander at Lacus Mortis.
  • PROSPECT / ProSPA:  The OU is leading the development of ProSPA, a miniature chemical laboratory for analysing samples for water and ice at the Moon. It is half of ESA's PROSPECT drilling and analysis package for the Roscosmos Luna-27 mission which which aims to land near the south pole of the Moon in 2025. Through its 12-month mission on the Moon, PROSPECT will carry out a detailed survey of how water and other molecules are distributed on and under the Moon’s surface. It will help us understand where these materials came from, and whether they might be harvested as useful resources. The OU is partnered in UK by RAL Space, Airbus Defence and Space, and Dynamic Imaging Analytics; in Germany we work with Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research and Technical University of Munich. PROSPECT is led by Leonardo S.p.A. (Italy) under a programme of and funded by ESA.
  • Drill-eye:  a miniature camera mounted inside a drill that will allow scientists to see in real-time under the Moon's surface. By picturing the inside of a bore-hole in real time, we capture valuable scientific information about sub-surface layering, ice content and partical size, that can be lost when a sample is excavated to the surface for anaysis.  
  • iDrill:  an intrumented drill concept for rapid chemical and physical analysis of the lunar sub-surface 
  • Rosetta:  our gas chromatograph/mass spectrometer "Ptolemy" made the first ever chemical composition measurements on the surface of a comet on 12 Nov 2014 on board the Philae comet lander [UK Space Agency/ESA]
  • Beagle 2 GAP (Gas Analysis Package):  our gas analysis instrument was delivered to Mars on 25 December 2003 by Beagle2 but regrettably the lander failed to fully deploy and operations did not proceed. But all was not in vain; what we learned is being put to use in ProSPA and EMS.

Understanding attenuation of UHF by regolith for penetrator missions
RoleStart dateEnd dateFunding source
Lead01 Nov 201730 Apr 2018UKSA UK Space Agency

‘Penetrators’ are a new kind of spacecraft that land at high speed (think bullet from a gun!) into a planetary body such as the Moon, Mars or Europa, burying themselves a few meters into the ground in the process. Because they land at high speed, they don’t need much fuel to slow themselves down before hitting the surface – which means that the missions can be lightweight – which also means inexpensive. And here’s the clever bit: they contain a suite of sensors that operate during and after the landing, taking a host of scientific measurements such as the structure of the material into which they have landed, its temperature and chemical composition – even photos of the landing site. Many scientists – us included – think the best place to land the first penetrator mission would be near the south pole of the Moon. This has never been visited before, because it is very cold and there is very little sunlight to power the solar cells needed to keep a traditional Moon lander or rover alive. In fact, some places are so cold that we believe that valuable materials such as water ice may have collected there over billions of years in a gigantic deep freeze, holding clues about how the Moon formed and evolved. Not only is this of tremendous scientific value, it also changes the way we think about exploring the Moon and even our solar system. If we can find this water it opens up the possibility of using it to supply astronauts in future Moon bases with drinking water. And then we can split it into hydrogen and oxygen to fuel a new fleet of spacecraft that could take advantage of the Moon’s low gravity to launch new missions to Mars and beyond. This study is a vital step in designing a penetrator mission. We want to study how the radio signal that it transmits after landing, is affected by the soil it is buried beneath. If we find that the signal passes easily through the soil, we can design the penetrator to go deeper so it can achieve more science. If the signal doesn’t pass easily, then we will design a shallower penetrator. The ideal experiment would test a radio signal passing through real lunar soil. But to do this would require a lot of soil – much more than we could obtain of the precious samples brought back to Earth by NASA’s Apollo missions. And there’s another problem – all the samples on Earth are from near the Moon’s equator, meaning it is very different to what we would expect to find near the pole. So our first step will be to identify a suitable lunar soil ‘analogue’ – an Earth rock that has been crushed to mimic the essential properties of the Moon’s polar soil. Then we will mix it with varying proportions of water ice, and cool it to a range of sub-zero temperatures, to mimic the conditions at the lunar poles. And finally we can obtain a suite of measurements of the electrical properties of the soil, which we can feed into a computer model to predict how our penetrator antenna will perform when buried on the Moon. This research will be performed by The Open University partnered by QinetiQ Limited, and you can follow our progress at www.spacelabslive.com

PROspecting lunar VolatilEs

Co-investigator01 Sep 201731 Aug 2019UKSA UK Space Agency

This project will investigate the nature and abundance of volatiles (gases such as CO2, CO, N2, H2) released during linear heating of lunar soils collected during Apollo missions. This study will provide the first quantitative estimate of gases released at different temperature steps that will directly feed into defining the performance requirements for ESA's PROSPECT instrument package which is being developed for a joint Russia-ESA lander mission to the south polar region of the Moon in 2021. I am a member of the ESA's PROSPECT User Group and my role is to help ESA define and refine measurement requirements for PROPSECT from scientists' (i.e. potential users) perspectives. Mahesh Anand is the project lead (PI) and Simeon Barber is the Co-PI on ProsPA instrument which is being developed at the OU under an ESA contract.

Mahesh Anand is the project lead (PI) and Simeon Barber is the Co-PI on ProsPA instrument which is being developed at the OU under an ESA contract. The nature and composition of lunar polar regolith is poorly understood as we do not have any samples from these regions on the Moon. Recent studies have indicated significant presence of volatiles (including water-ice) at the lunar poles and it is postulated that the lunar polar regolith is likely to be a mixture of indigenous lunar material (similar to lunar soils that were collected by the Apollo missions from near equatorial regions of the Moon) and in-falling extra-lunar material derived from asteroidal, cometary and solar sources. In the absence of any direct samples of lunar soils from the polar regions, the existing Apollo lunar soils in our collections are best candidates for establishing a baseline for volatile abundances in lunar soils utilizing the same analytical techniques as that proposed for the PROPSECT instrument package. Early studies carried out in 1970's and 1980's confirmed the presence of a range of volatiles in lunar soil that were released at various temperatures during linear heating from ambient temperature to 1400 deg C. However, the exact amount of gases released at a given temperature were never reported and, therefore, it has not been possible to evaluate quantitatively the contributions from various sources (e.g, solar wind, comets, asteroids etc.) for lunar volatiles. In this project, we propose to carry out linear heating experiments on a suite of carefully chosen Apollo soils, many of which have been previously analyzed for their volatiles, using our custom-built FINNESSE mass spectrometry system. In contrast to previous studies, we will calibrate our measurements using flow-rate of reference gases that would allow us to provide quantitative estimates of gases released during linear heating of Apollo soils. The results from our proposed work will not only improve our understanding of the nature and abundance of volatiles in the lunar soil but also help ESA in refining the requirements for the PROSPECT package. The information derived from our proposed work will critically underpin the success of PROSPECT aims and objectives while providing the Prospect User Group and the wider scientific community the baseline against which to interpret the mission data.

ProSPA / PROSPECT Phase B+
RoleStart dateEnd dateFunding source
Lead01 Apr 201631 Aug 2019ESA (European Space Agency)

We are to lead the development of "ProSPA", a miniature analytical laboratory to detect and analyse water and other volatiles that might be cold-trapped at the south pole of the Moon. Together with the drill system "ProSEED", ProSPA makes up "PROSPECT", the European Space Agency's vision for a technology and science package for use in collaborative space missions with international partners. ProSPA builds upon technology and know-how developed for Rosetta and Beagle 2 to identify, quantify and isotopically characterise volatiles in a mass spectrometer suite. ProSPA will hence provide insight into the water cycle on the Moon over billions of years and into the availability of resources for in situ resource utilisation (ISRU) by future exploration missions.
