(CANCELLED) AIP Women in Physics 2022: Impacts! Rocks from space colliding with planets - QUT

  • 20 Jul 2022
  • 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM (AEST)
  • The Gibson Room QUT, Z Block, Level 10 2 George St Brisbane, QLD 4000

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 Queensland and hosted by QUT's School of Earth and Atmospheric Science and the Planetary Surface Exploration research team. The event is open to the public and will be framed for an academic audience.
