Dr Karen Meech

UH Institute for Astronomy

The Origin of the Earth's Water


Water, the wellspring of life on Earth, is one of the most common
molecules in space, but no one know how it was delivered to our
planet and the other rocky worlds of the inner solar system. Understanding how water reaches habitable worlds is not only important for our solar system, but in understanding whether the myriad of extrasolar planets being discovered could support life.


Dr. Meech will talk about current ideas of where water came from-- including perspectives from recent and future space missions.
