The Origin of Molecular Complexity in Space

University of Leeds, Conference Auditorium 2

Speakers: Dr Sergio Ioppolo

One of the greatest challenges of modern science is to explain the origin of life on Earth and determine whether it can exist elsewhere in the Universe. Recent advances in observational, modeling and laboratory astrophysics have shown that the interstellar medium, i.e., the uninhabitable space between stars, is the place where complex organic molecules form. The question that remains is, how do we link the formation of these molecules observed in space to the life on Earth? Following a laboratory perspective, this talk will discuss how the building blocks of life are created and modified in star forming regions, and ultimately delivered to planetary systems.

Event type: Lecture/Talk
Organised by: IOP Yorkshire Branch
Contact details: Tea and biscuits will be made available on the evening. Also those travelling by a car, there is an ample car parking spaces available next to the auditorium.
