Interdisciplinary Scientist

NSSDCA ID: 1978-078A-13

Mission Name: Pioneer Venus Probe Bus
Principal Investigator:Dr. Nelson W. Spencer


A number of theorists were selected to participate as members of the science steering group in defining the scientific objectives, strategy, and planning for the mission, in coordinating the experiments, and in the analysis of flight experiment data. Each theorist had an area of major responsibility that included the interdisciplinary aspects of the nature of the composition of the atmosphere of Venus, the nature and composition of the clouds in the atmosphere, and the driving forces or energy inputs affecting the behavior of the atmosphere and clouds and changes that take place.
