Carl Allen will present the Physics Department colloquium. His talk is titled “Pieces of Other Worlds -- Solar System Physics, Chemistry, Geology, and perhaps Biology as revealed by Extraterrestrial Samples.” Extraterrestrial samples on Earth include lunar rocks and soils; meteorites from asteroids, the Moon, and Mars; dust particles from comets and asteroids; and atoms from the Sun. These samples reveal conditions at the birth of the solar system, the formation and evolution of planets and satellites, and implications for the start and spread of life. 4 p.m. in Workman 101.
