Presolar Grains in Extra-Terrestrial Materials: Probing Stars with Stardust presents the latest research on presolar grains and their stellar sources in a cohesive resource for bringing researchers in cosmochemistry, astrophysics, and astronomy up to speed on the state-of-the-art developments, analysis, and future implications. Beginning with a historical perspective on the study of presolar grains, the book then analyzes the properties and features of a variety of presolar grains, including Sililcon carbide, graphite, oxides, and silicates, and diamonds. It also includes techniques for analyzing presolar grains in the lab, and covers the starts that are considered sources of presolar grains, such as asymptotic giant branch stars, supernovae, and novae.By providing both context and analysis of presolar grains, Presolar Grains in Extra-Terrestrial Materials serves as an up-to-date summary of data, analysis, and implications of the study of presolar grains and their stellar sources.
