Planetary gamma ray spectrometry is a form of nuclear spectroscopy applied remotely to provide geochemical maps of planetary bodies. From early developments it has by now become a standard modality of planetary exploration. Basic and applied nuclear science has made significant contributions to the advancement of planetary gamma ray spectrometry, as outlined in this methodological and historical assessment.
