Congratulations to Claire Nichols on passing her viva. Claire’s work on the nanopaleomagnetism of iron-nickel meteorites (or ‘tiny space magnets’ as they will forever more be known…) has cast new light on the magnetic history of the pallasite parent body using new X-ray methods developed as part of the ERC project. Claire’s continuing quest to answer the question “What is magnet…?” will now move to M.I.T., where she will (among other things) turn her attention to the magnetism of the Moon. We wish her all the best!
