Lindy Elkins-Tanton is a world-renowned planetary scientist and member of the National Academy of Sciences.

Among her major original research achievements are the discovery that the Siberian flood basalts caused the end-Permian extinction, the revelation that rocky planets are born wet, and the concept of "drip volcanism." Asteroid (8252) Elkins-Tanton is named for her.
