Focusing on a specific crater named decades ago for a 19th-century alumnus of the same college is something else. Marina Baker, ’17, had that unique opportunity this summer, and made initial inroads with physics professor Nicolle Zellner toward determining the age of the Moulton crater, named for 1894 Albion graduate Forest Ray Moulton, a leading American astronomer during the first half of the 20th century.
