Walkabout the Galaxy

Jan 10, 2024

What role has Jupiter played in the existence of our warm and cosy home planet? Has it been bravely using its gravity to keep the inner solar system calm, or did we luck out and escape getting hurtled out of the solar system or dashed to bits in a giant collision? We’ll discuss new research that explores exoplanetary systems with multiple large planets and whether habitable planets can co-exist with them. And within our own planet we learn about iron snow at the core mantle boundary and its effects on our magnetic field. Join us for all this cool stuff, plus space news and trivia.
