7*M: Exploring large-scale problems
with small-scale observations

The group is highly diverse, including chemists, physicists, and geologists, from many different regions of the world. In its early days, the 7*M research group's interests centered on meteorites, mercury geochemistry, microprobe analysis, and mineralogy, suggesting the possible name "4M group" (the asterisk was added simply for appearances and the research group was then called "4starM"). Since then, group members and visitors have added many new interests; we stopped counting at seven. The group is now known as "7starM".
