Event details

On a quick journey through our solar system, I will introduce some of the more obscure aspects of ice behaviour and show how laboratory experiments can help explain it. We will start our journey in Stirling’s Planetary Ices Laboratory before moving on towards Mars’ polar regions and travelling to the outer solar system. Finally we return to Earth, namely to the Austrian alps, where space science and environmental protection meet.
