Cosmochemistry Can Save Lives with Morgan Nunn Martinez -- UC San Diego Founders’ Symposium 2013

3/18/2015; 12 minutes

UC San Diego graduate student Morgan Nunn Martinez presents her research on extracting and analyzing water in extraterrestrial samples. She has measured the oxygen isotopic composition of water found in meteorites from asteroids and Mars, and rock and soil samples from the moon. These studies will be used to refine theories of how water formed and was distributed throughout our solar system. (#27680)
