Harlan E. Spence, University of New Hampshire
HARLAN E. SPENCE is the director of the Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans, and Space, and also professor of physics, at the University of New Hampshire (UNH). Dr. Spence leads a research group that studies the physics of cosmic plasmas, from the Sun's corona to interplanetary space to Earth's upper atmosphere, using experimental and modeling techniques. Dr. Spence and his research team develop and use physics-based, numerical models to understand the powerful dynamics of interacting solar and planetary plasmas ("space weather") and the resultant deleterious effects on space technologies and astronauts. Dr. Spence was co-investigator on two energetic particle instruments on the NASA Polar satellite and is co-investigator on a suite of energetic particle instruments on the recently launched NASA Magnetospheric Multiscale mission. He is deputy principal investigator on a cosmic ray sensor on NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter mission and is principal investigator of a comprehensive charged particle instrument suite on NASA's Van Allen Probes mission. Finally, Spence is principal investigator of the NSF FIREBIRD-II CubeSat mission exploring the physics of relativistic electrons which reach Earth's upper atmosphere from the radiation belts. Dr. Spence worked at The Aerospace Corporation. Dr. Spence joined the faculty at Boston University as an assistant professor of astronomy and moved up through the ranks to full professor and department chair before moving to UNH. He is a recipient of an NSF Young Investigator Award, received the Wisneski Award for Excellence in Teaching at Boston University, received two Editor's Citations for Excellence in Refereeing from AGU publications, and has earned numerous NASA Group Achievement Awards. Spence earned his Ph.D. in geophysics and space physics from the University of California, Los Angeles. He served on the Academies Committee on Solar and Space Physics, the Solar-Wind Magnetospheric Interactions Decadal Survey Panel, and the Steering Committee of 2013-2022 Decal Survey in Solar and Space Physics.

"We really need to know more about the radiation environment on the Moon, especially if people will be staying there for more than just a few days," says Harlan Spence, a professor of astronomy at Boston University
"Not only will we measure the radiation, we will use plastics that mimic human tissue to look at how these highly energetic particles penetrate and interact with the human body," says Spence, who is the Principal Investigator for CRaTER. By placing the radiation detectors in CRaTER behind various thicknesses of a special plastic that has similar density and composition to human tissue, Spence and his colleagues will provide much-needed data: Except for quick trips to the Moon during the Apollo program, most human spaceflight has occurred near Earth where our planet's magnetic field provides a natural shield.
