SciCafe: Imaging Space Rocks Thumb

As technologies improve, scientists are able to glean more and more information from extraterrestrial rock, like asteroids and meteors, which can tell us about how the Earth and Solar System formed. But what are the technologies at work that help them collect such data? In this SciCafe, Museum curator Denton Ebel is joined by Amanda White, a con-focal microscopy specialist, and Ellen Crapster-Pregont, a doctoral candidate conducting her research at the Museum, in a discussion of the 2 and 3-dimensional analysis of these space rocks. 

This SciCafe took place at the Museum on December 3, 2014.
