Virtual Talk: Babelsberg Starry Night at 19th January 2023
The next lecture of the virtual Babelsberg Starry Nights of the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam (AIP) on the topic "Meteorite Craters on Earth" will be broadcasted starting on Thursday, 19 January 2023 on the YouTube channel "Urknall, Weltall und das Leben". Please note that the lecture will be given in German.
On Thursday, starting at 6 p.m., Dr. Jürgen Rendtel‘s lecture on the topic "Meteorite Craters on Earth" from the Babelsberg Starry Night series will be online.
Meteorite craters are found on many celestial bodies, but on Earth most of these craters are no longer recognizable as such due to subsequent processes. In this lecture Dr. Jürgen Rendtel explains with various examples how meteorite impacts occur and how exactly the craters are formed.
This season, the Babelsberg Starry Nights will not take place on site at the AIP, but will come straight to your home: on the 3rd Thursday of each month from 6 p.m. The lectures are available at
or via the YouTube channel Urknall, Weltall und das Leben (Big bang, the Universe and Life) and can be viewed at any time afterwards.
