Catch a Shooting Star

A couple of weeks ago a couple of our colleagues from The Open University came up to Manchester to discuss a new exhibition at the Manchester Museum – Catch a Shooting Star.

You can read more about the plans for this project and their visit, including the mystery of the disappearing train, on the Richard Greenwood’s blog – Meteorites: The Blog from the Final Frontier.

Keep an eye out for updates as the project progresses…

About Sarah Crowther

I'm a Post Doc in the Isotope Geochemistry and Cosmochemistry group. I study xenon isotope ratios using the RELAX mass spectrometer, to try to learn more about the origins and evolution of our solar system. I look at a wide range of samples from solar wind returned by NASA's Genesis mission to zircons (some of the oldest known terrestrial rocks), from meteorites to presolar grains.
