Cosmochemistry and Meteoritics: An Interview with Dr. John Wasson
John Wasson is a professor of chemistry and biochemistry at the University of California at Los Angeles. He holds joint appointments in the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics and two departments – Earth and Space Sciences and Chemistry and Biochemistry. His research interests include cosmochemistry (the chemical composition of the solar system), the solar nebula, and meteoritics. Wasson also has a mineral named after him – Wassonite, composed of sulfur and titanium, which was identified in a meteorite found in Antarctica.
