Kun Wang and I were chosen to be a part of the Mars Sample Return Science Definition Team. I’m excited to working out all the analyses we’ll do on these samples, currently being cached by Perseverance, to maximize the science return of MSR.
We have a new professor in the Laboratory for Space Sciences at Wash U: Tansu Daylan! Tansu is an expert in exoplanets and will help us generalize our understanding of the Solar System to other planetary systems in the Galaxy. So excited to have Tansu here, and his office is next door to mine, how cool is that?!
