MARTINA SCHMELING’S WORK WITH NASA AIMS TO ANSWER AGE-OLD QUESTIONS ABOUT THE UNIVERSE


IN HER LAB, Martina Schmeling holds the sun in her hand and, quite possibly, new clues about the creation of our solar system. As a member of NASA’s Genesis mis- sion, Schmeling, an associate professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry, has spent the last eight years developing procedures to clean extraterrestrial material gathered by the Genesis spacecraſt. Launched in 2001, the space- craſt spent more than two years hovering about 1 mil- lion miles from the Earth’s surface collecting samples of solar wind, a remnant of the original nebula from which our solar system formed some 4.6 billion years ago. When the spacecraſt attempted to return the samples to Earth in 2004, however, a parachute malfunction on the sample-return capsule led to a high-speed wreck in the Utah desert. With the samples fracturing into small pieces and contaminated by exposure to space radiation, NASA officials were forced to alter their plans. Aſter dis- covering solar-wind ions buried beneath the surface of the collectors, NASA recruited an international team of scientists, including Schmeling, into its effort to salvage the samples. “This is the type of project scientists dream of being involved with,” said Schmeling, “because it’s working on the frontiers of science.” —Daniel P. Smith
