Subject: Planetary Science Research Discoveries


Many Web sites report the latest news about planetary science. Fewer,
though, do what the University of Hawaii's Planetary Science Research
Discoveries (PSRD) does: take an indepth look at a particular area of the
field. PSRD publishes an average of just one to two articles a month, but
these articles usually go into considerable, useful detail: recent articles
on the site look at how studies of a meteorite are shaping our
understanding of core formation in asteroids, and the effectiveness of
irradiating Martian rocks with gamma rays to destroy any possible life
while preserving its geochemical properties. The URL is:
