Asteroids: The Solar System’s Rosetta Stones
Dr. Gerard Williger, U Louisville

Asteroids are remnants from the early solar system and little changed for the past 4 billion years, so they hold clues to the formation of the planets and possibly even to life. Come listen to the latest news about these small but important bodies, including from the Japanese Hayabusa 2 sample return mission. Dr. Gerard Williger (UL) will help to decipher their clues, and (3-D printer willing) enable you to hold some asteroid models in your hands! We’ll see you at Monnik Beer Co., 1036 E Burnett Ave, Louisville KY 40217 at 7pm in the Upper Room.
