A majority of this volume of Reviews in Mineralogy and Geochemistry is dedicated to the distribution and behavior of Be in terrestrial environments, yet the Earth makes up less than 0.02% the mass of the solar system. Therefore, it seems sensible to explore the behavior of Be outside our terrestrial home. In addition to remotely sensed data from planetary and solar surfaces, there is a large suite of planetary materials that have been used for exploring the geochemistry and mineralogy of the solar system (Shearer et al. 1998). The first planetary samples in our collection were delivered to...
