Winter School 2020: Astrochemistry

Sunday, February 23, 2020 - 9:30am to Saturday, February 29, 2020 - 5:00pm

The practice of astrochemistry is not just about understanding how molecules form, react and annihilate in the atmospheres of planets, in stars, in the ISM, and .... It is also, more and more, about how life-enabling precursors are formed, were transported to the Earth, moon, ... This school aims to bring some of the leading practitioners in this field, who think and conduct research in forming these molecules in the lab, observe them in space, and calculate and simulate their properties on computers. The students with interests in this broad spectrum of topics will have the opportunity to intimately engage in discussions with the lecturers.

Lecturers: 
John Black (Chalmers), Tijs Karman (ITAMP), Mike McCarthy (Harvard/Smithsonian), Thomas Henning(MPIA), Dan Savin (Columbia University), Susanne Widicus Weaver (Emory), Lucy Ziuyrs (University of Arizona)
