3 Highlights  In situ calcification (aragonite) of a 3.3 Ga microbial biofilm  Calcification probably due to the activities of a photosynthetic consortium of microorganisms within the biofilm including heterotrophic sulphur reducing bacteria  Preservation of the metastable carbonate phase by the organic matrix and secondary silicification  Oldest known(More)

To evaluate the isotopic composition of the solar nebula from which the planets formed, the relation between isotopes measured in the solar wind and on the Sun's surface needs to be known. The Genesis Discovery mission returned independent samples of three types of solar wind produced by different solar processes that provide a check on possible isotopic(More)
Meteoritic chondrules are submillimeter spherules representing the major constituent of nondifferentiated planetesimals formed in the solar protoplanetary disk. The link between the dynamics of the disk and the origin of chondrules remains enigmatic. Collisions between planetesimals formed at different heliocentric distances were frequent early in the(More)
