The 74th Annual Meeting of the Meteoritical Society, held at the University of Greenwich, London, in early August was by any measure a great success. In order to accommodate the record number of abstracts submitted to the meeting the organisers had to increase the number of parallel sessions being held from two to three. As a result there were often tough choices to be made about which talks to attend. There were many highlights, but my own particular favourite was the special session on the first results from the NASA Dawn mission to the asteroid 4 Vesta. The Greenwich meeting will be a hard act to follow. However, next year’s meeting is to be held in Cairns, Australia is going to be fairly special too.
The 75th Annual Meeting of the Meteoritical Society will be held in Cairns, Australia from 12 to 17 August 2012
