170 & 182 Dennison Building
Speaker: Professor Ted Bergin (U-M Astronomy)In this talk we will explore the chemistry of our own origins with a focus on water, the most important molecule for life on our planet. We will discuss how water is formed in the depths of interstellar space and is incorporated into the young Earth. We will also consider whether and how other water-rich planets might be found.
All talks are free and refreshments will be served. Visitor parking for the seminars (Central Campus) is across the street from the Dennison Building in the U-M Church Street structure. There is a $2.00 parking charge implemented by U-M Parking Services.
