Come join this year's Women in Physics lecturer Associate Professor Katarina Miljkovic discuss - Impacts! Rocks from space colliding with planets.

Full Abstract:

Only in the mid-20" 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 the physics behind the impact process. She will advance our understanding of the structure and evolution of the Solar System by using data from the NASA space missions she collaborates on.
