This session focuses on the cosmochemistry of solar system materials to better understand the chemical evolution of the Solar System's protoplanetary disk and the processes by which its minor bodies and planets formed and evolved. This focus includes targeting bodies of the Solar System of interest for future space missions. The session covers all topics of cosmochemistry of planetary materials  (including meteorites, micrometeorites, interplanetary dust particles, and materials acquired through sample return missions from asteroids and comets), and of the differentiation processes affecting the Early Earth, as well as impact processes on earth and other objects in the Solar System, including shock metamorphism.
