Origins Science Scholars On Campus: "Simulating Planetary Interiors In The Lab" says
"Simulating Planetary Interiors in the Lab"
James Van Orman, Professor of the Department of Earth,
Environmental and Planetary Sciences, CWRU

To understand how planets evolve over time, it is necessary to know the properties of the materials that compose them. Planetary materials are complicated, and many of their properties are difficult to predict from first principles. Instead, it is often necessary to study materials in the lab, under the high pressures and temperatures they experience in planetary interiors. This talk will explain experiments for studying materials under these extreme conditions, and what they tell us about the internal structure and dynamics of planets in our solar system -and beyond!
