AIP Women in Physics 2022: Impacts! Rocks from space colliding with planets - Adelaide University

  • 6 Sep 2022
  • 6:30 PM - 8:40 PM (ACST)
  • Braggs Lecture Theatre, The Braggs Building University of Adelaide North Terrace Campus

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 Adelaide, the event is open to the public and will be framed for an academic audience.

The Women in Physics lecture in Adelaide is also a special event as it marks the Claire Corani Memorial Lecture. The Claire Corani Memorial prize is awarded at this event to the most outstanding second-year female Physics student at each of the AIP-accredited courses delivered by South Australian universities.
