Cosmochemistry, often known as chemical cosmology, is the study of the chemical make-up of matter in the cosmos and the processes that produced such make-ups. The analysis of the chemical makeup of meteorites and other physical samples is the main method used to do this. One of the founding figures of Cosmo chemistry, Harold Urey, conducted studies that finally helped us understand how elements came to be and how abundant certain elements are in stars.  Despite the fact that cosmochemistry is one of the most interdisciplinary of disciplines, the most interesting breakthroughs in the subject and the most rigorous theoretical restrictions have come from the identification of the isotopic characteristics of extraterrestrial materials and their constituents.
