Science on Tap | Seconds after Impact

Speaker: Catherine Macris Location: Blind Owl Brewery

Science on Tap Logo

Not only are asteroid impacts responsible for building and shaping the planets in our solar system, they also play an important role in life on Earth. Impacts facilitated life on early earth by bringing water in the form of ice, and destroyed life later in large, violent events like the one that caused the dinosaurs to go extinct.  But what exactly happens during and after a large impact on Earth that causes such destruction? Come to this edition of Science on Tap to discover how scientists use new technology to learn from these events. 

Join us for a cold drink and some enlightening conversation at the latest installment of Science on Tap! This series is sponsored by the School of Science & the School of Science Alumni Association and is a 21 and older event.
