The Exolith Lab is a not for profit extension of CLASS, dedicated to regolith simulant production and applied research. Simulant costs cover materials, facilities, and labor.
We also maintain the Planetary Simulant Database as a resource for the community, with information on historic and current planetary simulants. We are happy to provide free consulting on simulants, in partnership with the ESA Sample Analogue Curation Facility.
What is Simulated?. A brief fact sheet on what our simulants do and don’t emulate about the extraterrestrial regoliths they’re based on.
Plant Growth in Simulants. Some tips for growing plants based on initial experiments by simulant users.
