The aurora, also known as the northern and southern lights, are known for their spectacular light displays that dance and shimmer across the night skies. But how could something so beautiful be tied to our understanding of something so nerdy like physics? In this talk, we’ll watch a lot of stunning videos of the aurora, take a peek at how aurora have influenced human society throughout history, and discover why the Sun is the culprit in their formation. Aurora don’t just happen on Earth- we’ll end by discussing what scientists are currently up to and trying to learn, by studying aurora at other planets such as Mars.

 

As a WVU Research Week talk, all are welcome to this free talk. 

Space is limited, so please RSVP to: https://www.ticketsource.us/wvuplanetarium/aurora-earth-vs-mars/2024-04-05/17:00/t-eavqepp
