Understanding the Early Solar System Through Isotopic Fingerprints – Dr François Robert, Institut de minéralogie, de physique des matériaux

Nov 8, 2017physical sciences

During the early stages of the solar system formation, the development of molecular organic and inorganic structures occurred through poorly documented mechanisms such as photochemistry or nuclear reactions. Directly probing such phenomena in the laboratory is almost impossible. However, isotopic compositions in lunar soils or in meteorites are chemical fingerprints, which Dr François Robert at the National Museum of Natural History, France, uses to resolve these unexplained phenomena.
