Astroblemes: Evidence of an Ancient Game of Planetary Whack-a-Mole


The solar system is a rough neighborhood.  ALL hard-surfaced solar system bodies observed to date show evidence of impact cratering.  Planets, moons, asteroids, and comets have all been smacked by errant rocks, large and small.  This is obvious on our own Moon, but what about Earth?  In this visually engaging presentation, we will explore impact craters from Mercury to Pluto, then come back to Earth to look for impact craters in our own backyard.
