Colliding Worlds: How Cosmic Encounters Shaped Planets and Life (Free Hybrid Book Presentation)
This free presentation by physicist Simone Marchi highlights his research on how collisions in space have shaped our solar system and even life on Earth. Both Zoom and in-person options are available.
Simone Marchi, Staff Scientist, Southwest Research Institute
Signs of ancient collisions are widespread in the solar system, from the barren, once-habitable Mars to rugged asteroids. In this talk, physicist Simone Marchi, discussing his recent book, Colliding Worlds (Oxford University Press, 2021), will explore the key role that collisions in space have played in the formation and evolution of our solar system, the development of planets, and possibly even the origin of life on Earth.
