Meet Emily Bathgate, winner of the VSSEC-NASA Australian Space Prize and hear about her NASA Academy experience. Emily will join Dr Graziella Caprarelli for UTS Science in Focus: Earth vs. Mars - Battle of the planets.
Dr Graziella Caprarelli examines claims and causes of warming of other bodies in the solar system, in particular those at the periphery of the solar system and Mars. She debunks myths and discusses the realities of temperature variations, trends and similarities (warming or cooling) and how this cannot be used by default as evidence in investigating the Earth’s climate changes.
UTS honours student Emily Bathgate shares her recent experience at the NASA Ames Research Centre in California, USA and talks about what can be achieved with a career in space science.
This is a free public lecture series presented by UTS experts in science; discussing a range of important scientific issues confronting contemporary Australia.
