Our first speaker of the night was Dr. James Ashley, a scientists at JPL, who studies meteorites. He taught us all about meteorites from other planets, and the vast amount of information we can learn about these planetary surfaces and atmosphere from them. Thanks, James!
Our final speaker of the night was graduate student, Denise Schmitz, who gave us the straight dope on dark matter, what it is, how we know it's there, and how we might be able to learn more about it. It was a really spectacular talk, and everyone enjoyed it.
