Book now

Drilling the Chicxulub impact crater has led to a better understanding of the formation of large impact craters and the subsurface of other planetary bodies. The study revealed that large impacts may be catastrophic (as Chicxulub was to the dinosaurs) but could also have provided a habitat for early life on Earth.

Optionally followed by supper (this can be booked on the event booking form).
After the lecture a Friends' Table has been reserved at a local restaurant to entertain the speaker and for any of the audience who would like to join us to continue the evening's discussion. A two-course fixed price supper is served including wine, coffee and service charge.
