Formation of chondrules in magnetic winds blowing through the proto-asteroid belt

Salmeron, Raquel; Ireland, Trevor

Description

Chondrite meteorites are believed to represent the building blocks of the solar nebula, out of which our solar system formed. They are a mixture of silicate and oxide objects (chondrules and refractory inclusions) that experienced extremely high temperatures, set in a matrix that remained relatively cold. The prevalence of chondrites suggests that they formed through a very general process, related to stellar and planet formation. The nature of this mechanism, however, remains obscure as...[Show more]
