Speaker's Night: Water, water everywhere? (ONLINE)

Paul A. Delaney, University Professor, Allan I. Carswell Chair for the Public Understanding of Astronomy, York University
Wednesday, October 28, 2020 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm

Our understanding of our own solar system has changed significantly since the advent of spacecraft exploration. Water was once believed very scarce in our corner of the galaxy but we now realize this is not the case. From understanding where our own planet’s  water riches originated to the proliferation of the so called water worlds, this presentation will discuss the evolution of this “sea change” in thinking and its implication for the search for life on exoplanets.
