Magnificent Desolation” Those were the words uttered by Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin as he allowed his eyes to take in the starkness and monochrome hues of the lunar surface. The scene was a pristine desert landscape, but instead of the familiar beige-colored sand, the entire surface was covered in a fine, charcoal-gray powder.
Carol is an accomplished research scientist and science journalist. She obtained her Ph.D. in 1984 from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne and is now based in the Department of Materials Science at Lehigh University.
