Ernst Zinner and Donald Clayton

Ernst Zinner and Donald Clayton converse at the conference The Solar System and the Galaxy, Tucson, Arizona.  They discussed possibility of finding Stardust with secondary-ion mass spectrometry (SIMS). Clayton had predicted Stardust isotopic identifiers since 1975, and Zinner had developed SIMS capability to the point of detecting D-rich interplanetary dust particles, as he reported in Houston in 1984. Clayton’s paper in Tucson (see the book) was on a local model for the 26Al gamma radiation that had just been detected., Credit Line: AIP Emilio Segrè Visual Archives, Clayton Collection
