Ashley King is a Research Fellow at the Natural History Museum, London, where he investigates the origins of the Solar System and the formation of planets through the laboratory analysis of meteorites and samples returned by space missions. Ashley is a member of the sample analysis teams for the Hayabusa2 and OSIRIS-REx missions and is the current lead of the UK Fireball Alliance (UKFAll), a collaboration between meteor camera networks that aims to recover freshly fallen meteorites in the UK.
Luke Daly is a Lecturer in Planetary Geoscience at the University of Glasgow and Treasurer of the UK Fireball Alliance. He looks at the very small to get at the very big by tearing extra-terrestrial rocks apart one atom at a time to try and understand what the Solar System's environment was like before there were planets, how asteroids form and evolve and how habitable worlds are made.
