The role of protostellar jets in star formation and the evolution of the early solar system: Astrophysical and meteoritical perspectives

Salmeron, Raquel; Ireland, Trevor


The rock record from the early solar system indicates high-temperature thermal processing sufficient to melt refractory oxides and silicates. The astrophysical context for the formation and evolution of our solar system, from a molecular cloud to a "clean" planetary system, is difficult to constrain tightly because of the large scales and lack of resolution of astronomical observations. Protostellar jets and winds, commonly associated with forming stars, are likely to play a role in heating and...[Show more]
