Meteoritic evidence for very early volcanism in the nascent solar system

Scientists from Freie Universität Berlin, University of Bristol, Northwest University Xi'an and the Institute of Geochemistry of the Chinese Academy of Sciences have published the results of a new determination of the crystallization age of 4566.6 ± 0.6 million years for a meteorite called Erg Chech 002 (EC 002). The new age, determined using the manganese-chromium dating method, shows this rock crystallized only 0.7 ± 0.6 million years after the formation of the solar system.
