Rock Glaciers: From Mountain Hikes to the Colonization of Mars – Dr. Petersen
The James Webb Space Telescope and Our New Look at Other Worlds – Dr. Everett
First, Dr. Eric Petersen (UA Lunar and Planetary Laboratory) will tell us about rocky (and icy??) glaciers on Mars! Dr. Petersen is a planetary scientist and a geophysicist who uses satellites like the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter to look for ice that may play a key role in future hikes on Mars…or even colonization! Then Dr. Everett Schlawin (Steward Observatory) will present a new look at other worlds! Dr. Schlawin works on the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), NASA’s next flagship mission. With a 21.3 ft mirror and a sunshield the size of a tennis court, JWST will revolutionize our view of worlds outside of our solar system.
The event is on June 19th, 7pm, at the Borderlands Brewing Company (119 E. Toole Ave, Tucson AZ).
