The study of extraterrestrial materials and their mineral components is of fundamental importance for better understanding the processes involved in the origin and evolution of our Solar System. The planetary science community is deeply involved in the development of new analytical and experimental approaches to improve the investigation of asteroidal and planetary bodies from the study of extraterrestrial samples (e.g. meteorites, micrometeorites, interstellar grains, sample return materials) or their analogues.
The aim of the session is to bring together scientists from different backgrounds to enhance the discussion on meteoritic and planetary science topics and exchange their ideas for future scientific collaborations. We encourage contributions from the fields of petrology, mineralogy, geochemistry, as well as experimental petrology, mineral physics, and numerical modeling. In addition, we welcome contributions covering studies about hyperspectral analyses of extraterrestrial bodies, exoplanets and astrobiology.
