Event Details

CAFE SCIENTIFIQUE, SILVER CUP, HARPENDEN

Talks starts 7.30pm

 Professor Hilary Downes

The early Solar System was a violent place. Before the familiar planets were formed, several earlier generations of small planets and asteroids were formed and were destroyed by impact and collisions. One planet is thought to have smashed into the growing Earth and formed the Moon from the collision. This talk will present evidence for the existence of these lost worlds, from which only tiny fragments remain. These lucky remnants are hiding in our meteorite collections which are in many cases, the sole survivors of a lost world.
