SciTalk: Meteorites

Join us Thursday, FebruCascadia Meteorite Laboratoryary 23rd at 7pm when we welcome Dick Pugh of Portland State University's Cascadia Meteorite Lab for a talk on meteorites.  Dick will discuss the lab's work in collecting and studying meteorites, specifically those that have been found in Oregon. In addition to the talk, Dick will be bringing a priceless collection of real meteorites for guests to touch and explore.  If you think you have a meteorite, Dick will be available for pre-talk evaluations starting at 6:30pm.

Click here to read the recent front page article from the Mail Tribune about meteorites and the work done at the lab. 

Meteorites provide vital clues about the origin of the Earth and other planets, our solar system, and the molecules that serve as precursors to life. Meteorite research contributes to the larger field of planetary science, which can help society evaluate how to utilize extraterrestrial resources, how to protect our planet from the devestating effects of a major cosmic impact, and how planetary climate change might occur.

Dick Pugh is a long-time meteorite enthusiast, educator, and field scientist who graduated from Portland State University and went on to teach science for 30 years at Cleveland Highschool in Portland.  He has spent decades giving lectures on meteorites and currently is the face of CML's outreach program.
