Dr. George Flynn

Photo of Dr. George Flynn Dr. George Flynn is a Professor at the Plattsburgh campus of the State University of New York, where he teaches Physics and Mathematics. He received B.S. and M.S. degrees in Physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1973, and received a PhD in Physics from Washington University in 1982. He has performed chemical analysis of meteorites and interplanetary dust since the mid-1970s. He employs synchrotron-based x-ray techniques for the chemical, mineralogical and organic analysis of micron-size and submicron-size particles. For the past decade he has participated in the development of x-ray techniques for the in-situ chemical and mineralogical analysis of particles captured in aerogel, so the particles can be analyzed without first having to remove them from the aerogel. Dr. Flynn is a member of the Stardust Science Team, and he will lead a group of scientists from four continents who will perform preliminary chemical composition measurements on the samples of comet Wild 2 collected by Stardust.
