The I, Scientist Conference, in Berlin Adlershof (Aug 25 - 26, 2018) focused on female role models in- and outside of academia.
Markus Patzek, PhD student at the Institute of Planetologie (University of Münster, Germany) received the Brian Mason Award (1,500 $) for his abstract presented at the Annual Meeting of the Meteoritical Society in Moscow (July 22 – 27, 2018).
This award honors young PhD students and is sponsored by the “Meteorite Times Magazine” and the „International Meteorite Collectors Association (IMCA)“. Markus reports the discovery of volatile-rich fragments in brecciated meteorites that are different in their mineralogical and isotopical composition from CI chondrites. This result indicates a larger variability of primitive CI-like material in the early Solar System 4.5 billion years ago. The new discovered fragments are important to understand the composition of building blocks of terrestrial planets.
Michael Bizimis of the University of South Carolina is visiting Andreas Stracke's group. Christian Renggli from the Australian National University in Canberra, Australia, is a postdoc with Stephan Klemme's group.
The European Planetary Science Congress 2018 will take place at the TU Berlin, Berlin, Germany,
Sep 16–21, 2018.
This attractive location provides a platform to exchange and present results, develop new ideas and to network amongst the worldwide planetary sciences community. It will have a distinctively interactive style, with an extensive mix of talks, workshops and posters, intended to provide a stimulating environment for the community to meet. The meeting will cover the entire scope of the planetary sciences.
We look forward to seeing you there.
