Dr. Patrick Gaulme, astronomer with the Apache Point Observatory and the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, is the guest speaker for the Physics Department seminar. He will present, "Seismology of Giant Planets." Seismology applied to giant planets could drastically change our understanding of their deep interiors, as it has happened with the Earth, the Sun, and many main-sequence and evolved stars. The study of giant planets' composition is important for understanding both the mechanisms enabling their formation and the origins of planetary systems, in particular our own. 4 p.m. in Workman 101.
