Scientists Solve Mystery of Odd Patterns of Oxygen in Solar System’s Earliest Rocks

Cosmochemists at the University of California, San Diego, have solved a long standing mystery in the formation of the solar system: Oxygen, the most abundant element in Earth’s crust, follows a strange, anomalous pattern in the oldest, most pristine rocks, one that must result from a different chemical process than the well-understood reactions that form minerals containing oxygen on Earth.

This was the project that I worked on with my undergraduate research lab supervisor and lab co-worker. I’m pleased to know that the ‘doom machine,’ as it was called in the lab and that I performed tests on, was able to successfully do what it was intended to do! :)
