Lunar glass beads are tiny particles which can be found in the lunar regolith (or “soil”) covering almost the entire surface of the Moon. Glass beads can form due to volcanic eruption or be a result of impact flux, which defines two directions of the project. Volcanic glasses provide information about the lunar interior and the origin of mare basalts, mantle composition and its differentiation. Impact glasses aim to study compositional evolution of the lunar crust, regolith and impact processes. Investigation of glass beads will be help to decrease the ambiguity in the lunar chronology, providing precise U-Pb ages of the impact history.
