Astronomy Deli – The Carnegie Observatories seminar series

They do this every spring in Pasadena, most recently at A Noise Within, and only now do I find out about it through random Youtube searches… It’s an outrage I tell you.

But the talks are so good, I’ll get over it.

Check out the Carnegie Observatories talks on everything from galaxies to planets to genes.

I will also have to get to their Open House on 18 October 2015.

Perhaps the most surprising presentation was Dr. Linda Elkins-Tanton speaking on planet formation. I had no idea they formed so fast. Even more surprising, that water sufficient to create oceans can remain in the coalescing bodies despite the relentless bombardment and high heat.
