Scientists might one day be capable of discerning land, oceans and clouds on distant planets by looking for reddish, bluish or grayish tints in the color of those worlds. Above is a still image from the EPOXI mission showing the Moon transiting Earth. They are observed at different light wavelengths, which is why differences in details are visible. The first pictures of an Earth-like extrasolar planet will not be this detailed. Credit: Donald J. Lindler, Sigma Space Corporation/GSFC; EPOCh/DIXI Science Teams

Samples are readied for analysis in an advanced atom probe invented in the 1990s by Thomas Kelly, when he was a professor of materials science and engineering at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. The probes, produced by scientific instrument maker CAMECA in Fitchburg, Wis., can measure the atomic composition of ultra-small samples. The precision instruments are sold around the world to researchers in government, industry and academia. Credit: David Tenenbaum/University Communications

Thomas Kelly, who was a professor of materials science and engineering at UW-Madison for 18 years, demonstrates the atom probe his company built, which helped date a 4.4 billion-year-old zircon — the oldest existing bit of earth.
