The Minnesota Institute for Astrophysics presents:

Comets: The Rosetta Stone of the Solar System

Robert Gehrz

Just as the Rosetta Stone was the key to cracking the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic code, comets are the key to understanding the origins of the solar system and, perhaps, life on Earth. Join us on Tuesday, March 22nd, 2022 at 7 pm CST via Zoom where Professor Gehrz will be describing the formation of comets, their structure, and contents, and their relationship to the formation and evolution of the solar system.  Dangers posed by comet debris strikes on Earth and strategies for mitigating them will also be discussed.
