Michelle Thompson: Unlocking the mysteries of the universe with space dust and Timbits

Dr. Michelle Thompson (Artsci’11, Sc’11) studies what happens to rocks in the moon or other planetary bodies when they are hit by micrometeorites, irradiated by solar wind, or affected in other ways, a process known as solar weathering. The Queen’s graduate is helping explore our solar system and expand our knowledge of it – all while working in a lab on Earth.
