Each month, Professor Jared Shaw with the UC Davis Department of Chemistry hosts the Davis Science Café, featuring scientists who are studying some of today’s cutting edge topics. This month’s guest is Professor Sarah Stewart from the UC Davis Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences who studies planet formation. Invite a friend, and get here early to grab a seat at G. Street Wunderbar. Let’s drink to science!

Abstract:  Why do we think the Moon’s formation was triggered by a giant impact? Why don’t the other rocky planets have big moons? Why are the satellite systems around the giant planets so different? Come to the next Davis Science Cafe to learn the answers to these questions!
