Origins of the Solar System

28 January 2015

The Gordon Research Conference on the Origins of Solar Systems is due to meet from June 28-July 3 2015 at Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, MA, an interdisciplinary meeting bringing together scientists from the fields of meteoritics (meteors), astrophysics, planetary science, extrasolar planets (or exo-planets) and the earth sciences. There are 32 invited speakers and 9 discussion leaders who will talk about the latest research findings – http://meteoriticalsociety.org

The meeting this year will look at topics such as the formation of proto-planetary disks, the chemical evolution of protoplanetary disks, physical chemical properties of planetary building blocks, and the implications for how the earth was assembled (and the other planets). I have put this up as the Electric Universe theory of Wal Thornhill requires the solar system having a latecomer, the planet Venus. Some of these talks may be of use to anyone interested in the subject.

Applications to attend the meeting can be submitted through conference web site at www.grc.org/programs.aspx?year=2015&program=origins
