Dr. Melosh-Dr. Minton Research by Dr. Jay Melosh and Dr. David Minton, School of AAE professors by courtesy, examines meteorite material born in molten spray as embryo planets collided
Research done at Purdue University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology suggests collisions of planetary embryos--the seeds to the planets in our solar system that existed 4 billion years ago--could be the origin of the material that formed asteroids. Dr. Jay Melosh and Dr. David Minton, School of Aeronautics and Astronautics professors by courtesy, say the next step in the research may be to explore how this chondrule formation mechanism fits into a new model for the early stages of planet formation.
