  1. The solar chemical composition is an important ingredient in our understanding of the formation, structure and evolution of both the Sun and our solar system. Furthermore, it is an essential reference standard against which the elemental contents of…
  2. Updated solar photospheric abundances are compared with meteoritic abundances. The uncertainties of solar abundances of many trace elements are considerably reduced compared to the 2003 compilation. Some of the solar rare earth elements have now…
  3. Recent studies of oxygen isotopes in meteorites are reviewed. Findings by many researchers who have investigated the origin of the isotopic anomalies in oxygen, parent-body processes, nebular processes, chondrites, achondrites, iron meteorites, and…
  4. The Hayabusa spacecraft successfully recovered dust particles from the surface of near-Earth asteroid 25143 Itokawa. Synchrotron-radiation x-ray diffraction and transmission and scanning electron microscope analyses indicate that the mineralogy and…
  5. Stable-isotope variations exist among inner solar system solids, planets, and asteroids, but their importance is not understood. We report correlated, mass-independent variations of titanium-46 and titanium-50 in bulk analyses of these materials.…
  6. Asteroids are what is left of the precursors to the terrestrial planets. They are stunning in their diversity, ranging from charcoal-black worlds the size of a hilltop, spinning like a carnival ride, to dog-bone-shaped metallic remnants of some…
