Sulfates in extreme places, DNA tied in knots and magnetic cooling at crystallography meeting
Date:5/23/2011

ay diffractometer that will be aboard the NASA Mars Science Laboratory scheduled for launch in the fall of 2011.

Fieldwork was conducted with the Canadian Space Agency on Axel Heiberg Island, Canada.

Another special challenge is that many sulfate minerals have very similar appearance and physical properties and therefore to make effective use of field time in remote areas it is necessary to have a portable diffractometer system available to allow the researcher to adjust sampling strategies and priorities as the locality demands. The discovery of another new mineral, (cranswickite MgSO4-4H2O), at a remote deposit in northwest Argentina was made possible through the use of a portable powder diffractometer. The mineral is named after Lachlan Cranswick, whose work is commemorated by a special session at the 2011 ACA annual meeting.
