Cosmochemistry and Isotope Geochemistry

How old is the Earth? What is the origin of the Moon? And when did the first planetesimals form? The Cosmochemistry and Isotope Geochemistry group explores these and other questions about the early solar system using the chemical and isotopic composition of meteorites and lunar, martian, and terrestrial samples.
