  1. Classification of meteorites is largely based on their mineralogical and petrographic characteristics and their whole-rock chemical and O-isotopic compositions. According to the currently used classification scheme, meteorites are divided into…
  2. 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 electronmicroscope analyses indicate that the mineralogy and…
  3. Fine-grained, spinel-rich inclusions in the reduced CV chondrites Efremovka and Leoville consist of spinet, melilite, anorthite, Al-diopside, and minor hibonite and perovskite; forsterite is very rare. Several CAIs are surrounded by forsterite-rich…
  4. New data from observations of asteroid mutual perturbation events, observations of aster- oid satellites, and spacecraft encounters have revolutionized our understanding of asteroid bulk density. Most asteroids appear to have bulk densities that are…
  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.…
