Dr. David Kring is perhaps best known for locating the crater left by the impact that triggered the extinction of the dinosaurs. During an earlier period of heavy bombardment, a very large impact event likely generated the Earth-Moon system, and may have sparked life on Earth. Dr. Kring’s research on the Moon will tell us more about how the Earth evolved. The moon is the first step to exploring a much larger solar system, and his team is working closely with NASA to develop hardware that will be used on the lunar surface in future missions.
