Authors: F. Sauro, R. Pozzobon, M. Massironi, P. De Berardinis, T. Santagata, J. De Waele
Editor’s note: due to an editorial mixup, two Geobites authors—unbeknownst to each other—wrote about the same paper.

As a result of the return of samples collected by the Apollo astronauts, and the delivery of meteorites to the Earth, scientists are continuously learning about the geological evolution of other planets.Continue reading “Out of this world!
