Diamonds in Space!

Dr Katherine Holt (Lecturer in Physical Chemistry)
Diamond needs no introduction – as a gemstone it has been a source of fascination for millennia. Diamond is made entirely of carbon atoms. So why does a material that is so chemically simple have such impressive properties? How is diamond naturally formed? Can we make diamond in the lab? Is diamond really found in space?

Exploring the Moon with Apollo samples

Dr Louise Alexander (Postdoctoral Research Assistant)
Between 1969 and 1972, the Apollo missions brought back 382 kg of material from the lunar surface. Many of the samples are still being studied today. Why are they important, and what can they tell us about the history of the Moon, the Earth and the Solar System?
