Dr Queenie Chan, OU Postdoctoral researcher, has analysed minuscule sapphire-coloured salt crystals, which were on two meteorites that fell to earth in 1998.
In a paper published this week (10 January) in Science Advances, she describes how these crystals have revealed that Ceres could be a water-rich world that is a suitable place for the formation of life and how advances in technology have made this analysis possible.
