Lunar Sourcebook: A User's Guide to the Moon

Front Cover
Grant Heiken, David Vaniman, Bevan M. French
CUP Archive, Apr 26, 1991 - Science - 736 pages
This extraordinary book is the only work to date to collect data gathered during the American and Soviet missions in an accessible and complete one-volume, encyclopedic reference of current scientific and technical information about the Moon. It provides a thorough introduction to lunar studies and a summary of current information about the nature of the lunar environment. It explores the formation and evolution of the Moon's surface, the chemical and mineralogical nature of lunar rocks and soils, and the current state of scientific knowledge about the nature, origin, and history of the Moon. The book is written and edited by scientists from academia, industry, and government active in every field of lunar research and all veterans of the Apollo program. Engineers, mission planners, planetary scientists, educators, and students interested in scientific study and exploration of the Moon will find this a unique and essential reference.

Z dynamical dual twist dynamics due to rotational slip between the orbital electrons contributing an increase and decrease in Torque forces on the Greenstone-moon stone-bismuth doped optical lattice.
The z dynamical dual capacitive twister force on bismuth doped silicon optical lattice promotes a revolutionary spin orbital frequency slips that show the resonance frequency of a nuclear momentum of a specialized donor can contribute cyclo converting torques on piezo electric crystals based on z dynamical Torque force. This promised an interesting Torque force Bossonova twister algorithm on Windmill blade crystal lattice by the impinging solar rays. The electron spin and rotational orbital slippages may thus contribute an interesting Torque force luminance that affine water which can be converted as a twister. This requires some Cooley-Turkey discrete algorithm.
The PULSE research team along with Project coordinator Sankaravelayudhan Nandakumar of Renewable Energy Research Center working under Dr.Ramalingam an eminent scientist with DR.Azhagesan, Principal Cape Institute of Technology,Coordinator Dr.Radhika Sakthikumar,Assistant professor are interested in Torgue Twister algorithm based on piezoelectric effect.
The strain on lunar crystal lattice due to temperature based luminance on lunar rocks exihibit extraordinary Torque force frequency shifts as speromagnetic inductive donars at reversible cyclo conversion frequency oscillating emits water affined gravity waves .Hence optic twisting Energy surface must have moonstone crystal dopings with bismuth combinations and a Cooley and Turkey algorithm must be developed in understanding cos theta dual twisters in between clockwise and anticlockwise breaking points
Z dynamical dual capacitive screwing at 22and 1/2 degree converging diverging nozzle high frequency to low frequency converters at critical points enhance self generating energy amplifying circuits may be designed using clockwise anticlockwise cyclo converters in understanding the high frequency-low frequency reversible resonances a
high torque emissions as applicable in Robotic mussel movements. They may be called Bossonova cyclo converters in between opposite cyclo coverters at energy gain breaking points enhancing high energy torque in specially speromagnetic doped optic lattices says
Sankaravelayudhan Nandakumar who doing basic research on self generating energy amplification dynamical fluid dynamic capacity twister dynamics on behalf of PULSE RESERCH UNIT of Cape Institute of Technology deBrogle optic lattices of lunar boundary gratings for 45 degree angular electron valley convergence to deal with water affined waves under the action of quantized magneticfield that act as frequency
shifting slots with voltage input among the grate valley reflections in amplified production of super gravity waves that could be used in artificial intelligent robotic optics using cyclo frequency converting modulation that may really be happening in lunar surface.
It is here that the optonic wave surprisingly transferred as gravity waves. Here the deBrogle matter wave is Bragg reflected by the spatially periodic optical field.The matter and optic field have interchanged from the usual case of Bragg reflection of an electromagnetic field by crystalline accumulation by photon induction forming new plane of crystalline planes. In between the high velocity states is operative the point at which deBrogle wave fields propagate without scattering at blackhole quantum dots by induced dark states of intermittence. A combination of deBrogle scattering with intermediate
dark matter reinforcement without scattering under high velocity recoiling and in fact Bernoulli,s energy transfer dynamics can also be applied partially in between velocity and pressure with quantum mechanical mix-up.
The effect of boundary reaction temperature on optical properties light sensitive lunar surface requires further investigation. Then we have to concentrate on low reaction temperature in forming a high quality crystalline structure forming High
