The recipients of the prestigious 2017 NASA Earth and Space Science Fellowship (NESSF) have been announced, and include the Center's own Daniel Dunlap!

Daniel's research involves the use of high-resolution chronometers based on short-lived radionuclides (Specifically, 26Al-26Mg and 53Mn-53Cr) to investigate the timing of melting and differentiation of planetesimals in the early Solar System.  These small bodies are thought to be similar to the building blocks from which the terrestrial planets were formed.  By placing precise time constraints on their accretion and differentiation, Daniel hopes to better comprehend the timeline of steps involved in the formation of rocky bodies in our Solar System.Dunlap research poster

The NESSF program awards students from accredited U.S. universities pursuing Master of Science or doctoral degrees in Earth and space sciences, or related disciplines. The purpose of the NESSF is to ensure continued training of a highly qualified workforce in disciplines needed to achieve NASA’s scientific goals.

Congratulations Daniel!

Meteorite of the Month

Vigarano

February's Meteorite of the Month is Vigarano, a (CV3) carbonaceous chondrite that fell the evening of January 22, 1910, near Ferrara, Italy.  Vigarano is the type specimen for the CV …
