UNM, NASA scientists find depletion of halogens due to Giant Impact

In new research, authored by University of New Mexico graduate student Tony Gargano and scientists from UNM's Center for Stable Isotopes, in collaboration with scientists from NASA’s Johnson Space Center, published today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) titled Chlorine isotope composition and halogen contents of Apollo-return samples, researchers focused on chemical analyses of halogens, or the highly reactive elements F, Cl, Br, and I (fluorine, chlorine, bromine, and iodine) and found that lunar materials are exceptionally depleted in these elements, with unusually high amounts of the heavy form (stable isotope) of chlorine, which they explain as a result from the Moon-forming Giant Impact.
