Center for Meteorite Studies

Later this month, several members of the Center for Meteorites Studies will present new findings at the 47th Lunar and Planetary Science Conference (LPSC), in Houston, Texas.  The Center's presentations cover a range of topics in meteoritics and cosmochemistry, including meteorites from asteroid Vesta, carbonaceous chondrites, meteorite petrology, the solar wind, and processes in the early Solar System.
