Hopefully you have all settled in to your hotels (i.e. your bedrooms) and enjoyed the icebreaker last night (i.e. sitting in your living room).

Can hydrogen from a melt transmit right into the core of a xenolith? Are xenolith cores somehow insulated from their edges? Konstantinos Thomaidis will tell you! LINK👈
