UCF/UF Star Formation Days

October 29, 2010

 

UCF will host the sixth Star & Planet Formation Day on Friday, October 29, 2010, and feature a talk by Scott Messenger, NASA Space Scientist, whose research interests include the nature and origin of materials in the solar nebula and preserved interstellar matter and stardust from comets and meteorites. We will also have a series of short informal research talks.

The meeting starts at 10 AM in Room 318 of the Math and Physics Building on the UCF campus (address: 4000 University Blvd., Orlando, FL, 32816-2385).
