Paper Abstract

The current status of orbital and in-situ surface nuclear measurements conducted on other planetary bodies is briefly reviewed. In-situ subsurface nuclear measurements used on earth to interrogate geological media down hole are described and their applicability on other planets is explored. Challenges that these techniques and associated devices are likely to face on other planets are discussed and opportunities for innovation that would benefit application both on other planets and on earth are identified.
