Caption: Harold Clayton Urey (1893-1981), US chemist, pointing at a feature on an enlarged image of the Moon. Urey was awarded the 1934 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for the discovery of deuterium, a heavy form (isotope) of hydrogen, and the isolation of heavy water. Urey modified his isotope separation techniques and applied them to uranium as part of the research into the production of an atomic bomb during World War II. After the war Urey studied the abundance of elements in the solar system, meteorite classification, and the origins of the solar system, including theories on the formation of the Moon.
