(CHANGE OF DATE) AIP Women in Physics 2022: Impacts! Rocks from space colliding with planets - Curtin University

  • 1 Dec 2022
  • 5:30 PM - 7:40 PM (AWST)
  • To be confirmed closer to the date

Only in the mid-20th century was it confirmed that impact craters are formed by meteorite strikes. Since then many space missions have mapped planetary surfaces and provided data about impact craters. Impacts have played a key role in the evolution of rocky planetary surfaces. Katarina will outline her work on physics behind the impact process. She will advance our understanding of the structure and evolution of the Solar System by using data from NASA's space missions she collaborates with.

Katarina's lecture is proudly coordinated by AIP Western Australia and follow an expo featuring science demonstrations and hands-on activities in physics, featuring impact craters, rocks from space, and space exploration
