  • Summary of CAPTEM Meetings
    CVD targets Options going forward include repairing the existing laser scribe acquiring a newer instrument which would lower operating costs outsourcing specific subdivision tasks or sharing samples sequentially without subdivision as was done for oxygen nitrogen and neon measurements The Asteroid Returned Samples subcommittee reported that JSC will receive another five Itokawa particles from the Hayabusa mission All particles received to date have undergone PET There is one pending request for a Hayabusa sample that is still waiting for additional information from the PI In the Stardust collection it was reported that there were four new sample requests for this meeting of the Stardust subcommittee as well as two sample requests that are pending for three months and two months respectively The first one is being processed after which the second will be completed To date there have been 141 refereed publications these are compiled in a Papers compendium There was a Stardust Workshop immediately before the 2015 MetSoc conference in Berkeley CA The workshop included 32 talks and 5 posters Attendees of the workshop are working on a white paper focused on unsolved problems in planetary science that can be addressed by analyses of Stardust samples with emphasis on instrumentation and sample preparation technique development The meeting was supported by a grant from NASA and CAPTEM was a sponsor of this meeting There is also a working group with 21 members considering a book or special issue of Meteoritics Planetary Science For the Lunar Sample subcommittee 343 Apollo samples have been allocated since LPSC Four sample allocations are on hold pending PI feedback and visits The thin section lab has made 11 new thin sections cleaned 750 repaired 160 and rounded four thin sections A total of 1 250 samples have been returned and 669 samples were processed in The Lunar lab has given 57 inside tours for 259 people and 51 viewing area tours for 669 people In addition 13 thin section sets and 162 disk allocations for outreach were made At the most recent Lunar Sample Subcommittee meeting a total of 30 new requests for 391 Apollo samples were made 323 new Apollo samples were approved There was some discussion of making lunar reference powders and changing the 50 by mass sample reserve policy for Apollo samples These items will be revisited at the Spring CAPTEM meeting Renovations on the new Micro CT lab will begin in early January and should be completed by late Spring Solicitation of official bids for the Micro CT will occur soon and the instrument is expected to be delivered by early summer A total of 20 new thin section cases have been constructed to supplement the eight existing thin section cases As the existing thin sections are moved into the new cases each sample will be macroscopically photographed to ensure a consistent photographic record of all existing lunar thin sections These images will be included with information about their respective samples in the Apollo sample database In news from the Meteorite
