Physical Research Laboratory (PRL) is a premier national research institution under the aegis of the Department of Space, Government of India. Founded in 1947 by Dr. Vikram A. Sarabhai, PRL is known as the “cradle of space sciences” in India. PRL will be hosting the Indian Planetary Science Conference (IPSC) during February 19 - 21, 2020. This prestigious meeting is first of its kind to provide a platform to the planetary science researchers to interact and share their research among fellow scientists. The study of the interiors, surfaces, and atmospheres of solar system objects and the processes that govern them constitutes planetary science research at PRL. This is achieved through theoretical models (computer simulations), laboratory experiments, remote sensing, and spacecraft based observations. IPSC-2020 includes one-day Lunar Science Meet aimed to discuss recent results and future science from Chandrayaan-2 payloads and all other studies related to lunar science and exploration.
