April 18, 2018
7 p.m.
Rubble Piles in the Sky: The Science, Exploration, and Danger of Near-Earth Asteroids
Free astronomy talk
Smithwick Theatre

Dr. Michael Busch, of the SETI Institute, will give a free, illustrated, non-technical talk on "Rubble Piles in the Sky: The Science, Exploration, and Danger of Near-Earth Asteroids."

The talk is part of the Silicon Valley Astronomy Lecture Series at Foothill College, now in its 18th year.

Near-Earth asteroids are a population of small bodies whose orbits around the Sun cross or come near our planet’s orbit. They turn out to be unusual physical environments: rubble piles, with shapes and spins determined by effects like the pressure of the sun's radiation. Near-Earth asteroids are also accessible targets for spacecraft missions. And they represent a natural hazard we ignore at our peril because some of these bodies have the potential to impact Earth. Dr. Busch will review the near-Earth population, programs to track and characterize as many near-Earth asteroids as possible, and current efforts to address the danger of asteroid impacts.

Michael Busch is a planetary astronomer based at the SETI Institute in Mountain View. His research focuses on characterizing near-Earth asteroid shapes, spins, and motions using radar and radio techniques. He obtained his Ph.D. in planetary science at Caltech and worked as a postdoc at UCLA and at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory before starting as a research scientist at SETI in 2013.

Foothill College is just off the El Monte Road exit from Freeway 280 in Los Altos. For directions and parking information, see: foothill.edu/parking

For a campus map, see: foothill.edu/map

The lecture is co-sponsored by:

* The Foothill College Astronomy Program

* The SETI Institute

* The Astronomical Society of the Pacific

* NASA's Ames Research Center.

We get large crowds for these talks, so we ask people to try to arrive a little bit early to find parking. The lecture is free, but there is a charge of $3 for parking on campus and exact change is appreciated.

Lecture Series II: Ruby Walia, Founder and President of the Touch A Soul Organization
Asian Pacific Islander Month
Hearthside Lounge (Room 2313)

Stress can cause people to experience emotional and even physical pain, and stress can multiply if not managed properly. As a practitioner of mind and body wellness, Ruby emphasizes the importance of finding healthy ways to cope with stressful situations rather than being completely drained by them. Ruby hopes that people can gain awareness of how to use stress as a tool to enhance their emotional wellness. Complimentary refreshments will be provided.

In July 2015, humanity's fastest spacecraft, "New Horizons," flew by Pluto, revealing details of its surprisingly active surface and atmosphere for the first time.

The evening will include a preview of the mission's next flyby, in 2019, of a remote member of the Kuiper Belt of icy remnants from the birth of our solar system.

After the talk, there will be a book signing for Stern and Grinspoon's new book Chasing New Horizons (2018, Picador Books.)

He was Associate Administrator at NASA for science missions and was twice named to Time Magazine's list of the 100 most influential people. He has been the author or editor of six books for the public and has won numerous prizes for his work, including the Carl Sagan Memorial Award.
