Principal Investigator:
Jon M. Friedrich

For the acquisition of an interactive computer workstation display to assist in the digital isolation and measurement of chondrules from x-ray microtomographic datasets of primitive meteorites (chondrites). The resulting data will be used in astrophysical models of our early solar system to constrain the processes which were prevalent within the protoplanetary disk about 4.5 billion years ago to answer fundamental questions relating to the origins of our solar system.
