Seminar Announcement: The Cosmic Billiard – Meteorites and Their Impacts


Recommended Posts

Apologize for multiple postings - 

We are one month away!

Meteorites are rare objects containing precious information on the origin of our solar system. They preserve evidence of processes that occurred on asteroids in the first few million years of our solar system’s history, but also of later stage events. These asteroids were heated by radioactive decay, leading to thermal metamorphism and release of fluids. They also experienced multiple collisions that left shock damage in the meteorites. Some of these meteorites are finds — often recovered in Antarctica or in hot deserts — but the most pristine ones are observed falls that are quickly recovered after their landing on Earth, preventing terrestrial alteration.

We are pleased to announce a five-hours seminar on the meteoritics science with particular emphasis on importance of meteorites related with planetary formation, sample return missions from other celestial bodies, and from Antarctica. Further, the potential threat from near-earth asteroids is small, but not Zero, and as such -and celebrating the recent "Asteroid Day"- the "impact hazards (https://bit.ly/3zdTz4N)" is another unique topic that will be discussed during the event. The seminar will be virtual from Agricultural University of Athens on Thursday July 7, 2022.

I'm sure if this was in the USA you would get some interest from our members, but with this seminar being held in Athens Greece chances are you won't get much interest from our members....BUT I could be wrong.

Just an FYI for anyone sorta interested on more info, I have visited all the linked sites and found no issues visiting them.

It's a virtual seminar Skip. You can attend from the comfort of your own home.  :D

It's only 10 euros. For 5 hours that's not bad. Only drawback is the time shift - on the left coast the seminar runs from 4 am to 9 am on Thursday.

"The course is dedicated for undergraduate, and graduate students, but more senior scientists are welcomed as well. "

Now to bone up on my Greek ...

where did I put those grape leaves?  .... :olddude:
