Studium Generale | Blaauw Lecture | Making Life From Stardust - Paola Caselli

Wanneer:di 08-03-2022 20:00 - 21:30
Waar:Academy Building, Broerstraat 5, Groningen

Our Solar System was born from a dark and cold cloud made out of gas and small dust particles. Thanks to powerful telescopes, we can now study in detail these clouds, their chemical ingredients and their evolution. We can then reconstruct our origins. Astronomer Paola Caselli presents a journey through space and time starting from interstellar clouds and ending to our Solar System. The dawn of organic molecules, the formation of stars and planets and the first steps towards life will be unveiled.

The Kapteyn Astronomical Institute organizes the yearly Blaauw Lecture, in collaboration with Studium Generale. More info & tickets
