Abstract

Eugene Shoemaker, who died on 18 July, founded the scientific study of planetary impact cratering on the Earth, Moon, planets and their satellites, as well as pioneering surveys of near-Earth asteroids and comets, often in collaboration with his wife Carolyn. His most important scientific legacy was recognizing how pervasive the impact cratering process was in the early Solar System.
