Title: Delivery of Earth's Water, a new hypothesis

Sam Crossley will lead a discussion on a recent publication in Science Magazine that suggests Earth's water may have been delivered by enstatite chondrites rather than the previously favored carbonaceous chondrites. Sam will briefly start the discussion by summarizing the paper, however, the discussion is open for all to participate. If you are interested in reading the paper ahead of time, the reference is Piani et al. 2020. Earth’s water may have been inherited from material similar to enstatite chondrite meteorites. Science 369, 1110-1113.
