Astrognome Scrapbook gene Shoemaker

Gene Shoemaker  the Founder of Astrogeology

Gene Shoemaker born in Los Angeles, California on April 28th 1928 brought together geologic principles to the mapping of planets, resulting in more than 3 decades of discoveries about the planets and asteroids of the Solar System.

He almost single-handedly created planetary science as a discipline distinct from astronomy. He explored ancient parts of the earth for records of meteorite and comet impacts, resulting in the discovery of a number of new craters. He was the Founder of Astrogeology.

Working with his wife Carolyn and David Levy he discovered Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 which in 1994 crashed into Jupiter.

Gene Shoemaker died Friday, July 18th , 1997 in Alice Springs, Australia in a car accident.
