Milestones

In 1982, planetologist Christopher McKay was the first person to use the word terraforming in a published journal article in an article called "Terraforming Mars".

The term applied planetology has also been used in JBIS. [http://books.google.com/books?id=2DJWAAAAMAAJ&q=%22applied+planetology%22&dq=%22applied+planetology%22&lr=&pgis=1]
