A selection of new research published during April.

Our members also write and edit lots of books. We loved this picture Richard Binzel sent us of him posing with Renee Dotson, Managing Editor at the the Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI,) and the 11 books that have been produced in the Space Science Series under a collaborative agreement between the University of Arizona Press and the LPI. Binzel serves as the General Editor for the Series, and Dotson serves as the Production Editor. Asteroids III was co-edited by Binzel, and Asteroids IV, by Research Scientists Francesca DeMeo, Sara Seager edited "Exoplanets."
