LPSC 2012

Well we made it!!! After hours of delayed flights, missed connections, fully booked alternatives, planes turned back due to faulty toilets, no sleep and extremely bad treatment at the hands of US Airways we got to Houston!

5 of us from Manchester are presenting our work at the Lunar and Planetary Science Conference in The Woodlands, Texas. The conference is being attended by over 2000 people and brings together international specialists in petrology, geochemistry, geophysics, geology, and astronomy to present the latest results of research in planetary science.

Tonight Sarah will be presenting a poster on “Pathways of iodine and xenon into terrestrial planets” which hopes to add to understanding of how volatile elements were incorporated into terrestrial planets like the Earth – something that is still not well understood. We wish her lots of luck!
