“Alien Worlds of the Outer Solar System” BYU lecture topic Dec. 1

“Alien Worlds of the Outer Solar System” will be presented by Jani Radebaugh, Brigham Young University assistant professor of geology, at an International Year of Astronomy Lecture Tuesday, Dec. 1, at 7 p.m. in Harold B. Lee Library Auditorium. Following her address, she will be available for a question-and-answer session.

Admission is free, and the public is welcome to attend.

During her lecture, Radebaugh will discuss how the Earth is used to understand the alien worlds at the distant reaches of our solar system. Her research focuses on three moons: the dunes, mountains and volcanoes on Saturn's moon Titan, volcanoes on Jupiter's moon Io and odd out-gassing phenomena on our own moon.

Radebaugh is a member of many societies for planetary science and serves on the steering committee for the Outer Planets Assessment Group, a NASA advisory panel. She received her bachelor's and master's degrees from BYU and a doctorate in planetary sciences from the University of Arizona.

Her lecture is sponsored by the Department of Physics and Astronomy.
