ORIGIN OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM

A pilot study is about to be started to look at the chemcial composition of chondritic meteorites.  While these are primitive materials, detailed, consistent geochemical compositions are rare.  We have just requested a suite of 8 samples to begin a systematic geochemical study of these primitive materials in order to look at the formation of the solar system and the planetary bodies therein.
