Exploring blocks of ice and rocks in space – simulating the solar system in the laboratory

On a quick journey through the solar system, Axel Hagermann, new Professor in Atmospheric science at Luleå University of Technology, will introduce some of the obscure forms of ice found, for example, on the surface of Mars – and farther away from the sun. He will present a few of the somewhat unexpected results from recent space missions, showing the surprising variety in the ices, rocks and soils in other parts of the solar system.

Axel Hagermann will share some of the exciting research done in the Planetary Ices Laboratory and show how experiments on Earth can help explain the data collected by space missions, and how the experience gained can be used to design the next generation of space instruments and space missions. Finally, he will show that space research is not all about the stars but can help us understand our own environment on Earth.

Lunch and coffee are for sale.
