Mar 24 @ 10:30 am – 11:30 am

We will explore ways to make astronomy, and STEM fields in general, a more inclusive and welcoming environment where EVERYONE can feel comfortable. This will make all people, including traditionally underrepresented groups, feel comfortable and welcomed working in our field.

One of the main goals this semester will be to identify and implement ways in which our own department can easily become more inclusive and welcoming. Come join us to find out what you can do!

Giant Planet Shielding of the Inner Solar System Revisited: Blending Celestial Mechanics with Advanced Computation

Dr. William Newman, UCLA

The Earth has sustained during the last billion years as many as five catastrophic collisions with asteroids and comets which led to widespread species extinctions. Our own atmosphere was literally blown away 4.5 billion years ago by a collision with a Mars-sized impactor. However, collisions with comets originating in the outer solar system accreted much of the present-day atmosphere. Relatively advanced life on our planet is the beneficiary of a number of impact events during Earth’s history which built our atmosphere without destroying a large fraction of terrestrial life. Using very high precision Monte Carlo integration methods to explore the orbital evolution over hundreds of millions of years followed by the application of celestial mechanical techniques, the presentation will explain directly how Earth was shielded by the combined influence of Jupiter and Saturn, assuring that only 1 in 100,000 potential collisions with the Earth will materialize.
