The composition of planets is determined by and tightly linked to the composition of the protoplanetary disk in which they form. In the first part of my talk, I will discuss giant planet formation through core accretion. I will show how the minimum core mass required to form a giant planet during the lifetime of the protoplanetary disk depends on the location in the disk, the equation of state of the nebular...

TITLE: Fragments from the Origins of the Solar System and our Interstellar Locale (FOSSIL): A Cometary, Asteroidal, and Interstellar Dust Mission Concept // ABSTRACT: Comets and asteroids preserve the least-altered materials remaining from the birth of the Solar System. However, the few visited by spacecraft are diverse in composition, and touring enough of these small bodies for a representative sample...
