Science Pub Series #11 – Hunting Killer Asteroids
Join the search with Professor Edward L. Wright from UCLA as we discuss deadly asteroids. Can scientists predict the next big one? Can Earth stop an asteroid from colliding with our planet? Come with all your questions and more, only at the next riveting Science Pub!
Prof. Wright (Harvard Physics ’69, Harvard Astronomy PhD ’76) is the David Saxon Presidential Chair in Physics and Professor of Physics and Astronomy at UCLA. His responsibilities include mission design, survey strategy planning, and thermophysical modeling of asteroids. Dr. Wright has extensive experience with spacecraft missions, including work on the Spitzer Space Telescope. He has developed a new method of thermophysical modeling, the first to account for surface cratering. Prof. Wright is the recipient of the 1992 NASA Exceptional Scientific Achievement Medal, and he was elected Fellow at the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
