The event will begin at noon and last until 1:00 p.m. The event is free to the public; however, admission to the museum’s Dino Days exhibition requires a fee.
David Baker, chair of the Austin College Department of Physics,
takes teaching to extremes—extreme places that is. The physicist
and his colleague Todd Ratcliff, planetary geophysicist at NASA’s
Jet Propulsion Laboratory, have written The 50 Most Extreme
Places in Our Solar System.
“I love exploring extreme things on Earth and other planets!" exclaims Baker. "From intense local thunderstorms to the wildest reaches of our Solar System, I strive to remain objective to the science and simultaneously allow myself to be awe-struck by the phenomena. What can I say -- I find extreme stuff fun and exciting to study!”
