PRIMITIVE OR PROCESSED? CARBON IN TODAY’S SOLAR SYSTEM VS. THE EARLY SOLAR SYSTEM AND THE INTERSTELLAR MEDIUM

October 21, 2018 @ 3:00 pm PDT - 6:00 pm PDT

As part of the SSERVI-sponsored series of workshops on Carbon in the Solar System, we will be holding a panel discussion at DPS called “Primitive or Processed?” Recent investigations within our Solar System, including the Pluto system, the Saturn system, Mercury, and nearly all points in between, point to carbon in some form on many bodies, though its nature is often elusive. The event will assemble a panel of experts (see below) to discuss carbon in the solar system (in meteorites and on planetary surfaces) and in the interstellar medium, and the relationships between them. How processed are the carbon compounds found across the solar system, compared to the carbon in the ISM? How does the processing occur, and on what timescales? What future measurements can help us to better understand carbon in our solar system?

Expert panelists include Dr. Yvonne Pendleton (NASA Ames), Dr. Diane Wooden (NASA Ames) and Dr. Kelly Miller (SwRI San Antonio). We hope you’ll join us for an engaging discussion!
