Over the last few months, “Hipster Cosmochemist” has become a Thing, which basically amounts to a caricature of me with my wayfarer glasses and scarf and overlarge cardigan, spouting gems like:
“I liked the solar nebula before it cooled.”
“Yeah, it’s a pretty niche field… You’ve probably never heard of it.”
“My favorite meteorites are carbonaceous chondrites, because they're organic.
"I think later-forming planetary material is superior, it’s recycled.”
“Oxygen fraction is just so great, I love how it’s truly INDIE(pendant of mass)!”
“I feel like I was born 4.567 billion years too late, you know?”
“I only care about Asymptotic Giant Branch stars, all of the others are too Main Sequence.”
