Topic, "Building Planets on Suborbital Rockets"

Hi. This month, Dr. Josh Collwell returns for a Cafe Sci discussion at 7PM on Wednesday 1 September, at Taste, in College Park.

Dr. Colwell, who last year gave a fascinating and beautiful presentation on Saturn's rings, returns to Cafe Sci to discuss research on the early stages of planet formation with a particular emphasis on a new capability for microgravity experiments, enabled by the new generation of tourist-carrying suborbital spaceships such as Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo.

Dr. Colwell is Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics' Planetary Sciences Group at UCF.

Taste is near the corner of Princeton Street (really Smith Street after the fork) and Edgewater Drive, so about 2 minutes from I-4 to parking. One can park on the street or in the parking lot behind Taste.

From I-4, drive a few blocks to Edgewater Drive. At the intersection, you should see a orange building ahead of you, labeled "Taste". Park on the street or behind Taste.
