Leverhulme grant to study the history of the Milky Way

A £174,468 grant entitled Assessing the potential of lunar geology as a window into galactic history, was awarded by the Leverhulme Trust to Professor Crawford (Birkbeck College) and colleagues Dr Pieter Vermeesch (UCL) and Dr Katherine Joy (University of Manchester). Dr Louise Alexander (Birkbeck) will be employed as a postdoctoral researcher on the grant, and will carry out cosmogenic 3He, 21Ne and 38Ar at the LGC, in order  to find out what the Moon may tell us about the history of the Milky Way Galaxy.
