Asteroid Impacts: Knowledge Is Power, Friday, October 19

Amy Mainzer, senior research scientist at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, will present “Asteroid Impacts: Knowledge Is Power” Friday, October 19.

Asteroids and comets have impacted the Earth over the course of its history. By studying these objects, we can learn about how our solar system came to be and we can better understand the potential for future impacts.

The UT Science Forum takes place Friday, October 19 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. in the Thompson-Boling Arena Cafe (located at 1600 Phillip Fulmer Way), Room A.

Guests are encouraged to bring their lunch or purchase it from the arena. Each presentation is followed by a Q&A. The event is free and open to the public.

We have temporary parking passes available for our guests who do not have UT parking passes. An RSVP is required for the pass. To request a pass, please email Amanda Womac. If you would like to receive a permit by US mail in advance of the meeting, please send an email before 10 a.m. Tuesday, October 16  and include your mailing address.
