AST, PLANETARY STUDIES
Jeremy Boyce is a planetary scientist within the Astromaterials Research and Exploration Science (ARES) Division at the Johnson Space Center. His interest is in the geochemistry of evolved planetary materials, especially as it relates to the formation of the terrestrial planets and their kin. He is currently focused on the part of the story told by volatile elements such as H, Cl, and S. Boyce's work uses the materials derived from previous missions—and experiments designed to simulate magmatic conditions—to further our understanding of the formation of the Moon, Mars and other terrestrial planetary bodies, work that both adds value to previously flown missions, and guides future mission planning.
