CMS at Lunar and Planetary Science Conference!

This March, several members of the Center for Meteorites Studies presented new findings at the 46th Lunar and Planetary Science Conference (LPSC), in Texas.  The Center's presentations covered a range of topics in meteoritics and cosmochemistry, including meteorites from Mars and Vesta, carbonaceous chondrites, meteorite petrology, the solar wind, and processes in the early Solar System.
