THE FINAL FRONTIER:
Exoplanetary Geology

Many of the processes that shape our world shape other planets as well. Geology techniques apply to extraterrestrial bodies as well. Even asteroids and comets may yield geological data. On Mars, clues like hematite nodules or the characteristic shapes of its canyons show that water once flowed on its surface. Answering what happened to all that water may help us colonize Mars one day. More importantly, it may also help us develop technologies for better managing Earth’s water resources.  However, given our limitations in reaching these bodies, scientists must infer their composition using tools and methods rarely used in standard geology. An exogeologist must rely on mineral properties visible through a telescope, like albedo (how reflective a surface is). Exogeology may also involve building and launching robotic probes. This requires a good knowledge of how to teach a machine how to collect and analyze samples.
