I am unravelling the history of an unusual group of carbonaceous chondrite meteorites that are believed to be similar to a certain group of water bearing asteroids; two of which are the targets of a JAXA sample return mission and a NASA sample return mission, Hayabusa2 and OSIRIS-REx. I want to compare the meteorites we have here on Earth to these asteroids, by using spectroscopic techniques, in order to say something about asteroid evolution.
