A change in thought on Earth's core formation
Livermore CA (SPX) Mar 03, 2015
Violent collisions between the growing Earth and other objects in the solar system generated significant amounts of iron vapor, according to a new study by LLNL scientist Richard Kraus and colleagues. The results show that iron vaporizes easily during impact events, which forces planetary scientists to change how they think about the growth of planets and evolution of our solar system. For planetary scientists, one of the most important and complex research areas is predicting how planets fo ... read more
