Time: 
11:00 am
Venue: 
Electrical Engineering Department, University of Engineering and Technology (UET), Lahore
Abstract: 

In this talk we shall discuss the structure and dynamics of the plasma environment of the earth and how it is influenced by the sun and its magnetic field, as has been revealed to us by observations, both remote and in situ, in the past 40 years or so. After presenting a brief overview of the major historical landmarks in the development of space plasma physics, we shall discuss the structure of the solar plasma and then see, by looking at its interaction with the earth�s magnetic field, how the earth�s magnetosphere and ionosphere are. We shall look into the composition of the earth�s plasma layers. We shall also briefly discuss the behaviour of comets when they come close to the sun.

Abstract: 

GALACTIC SPLENDOUR: The milky way is a swarm of energy and brilliance. One finds exuberant astrophotography: nature in its raw - the life and birth and ultimate death of stars; the prized celebrities of the heavens; nebulae and constellations. It also gives us a glimpse into the galactic suburbs, where stars are born.

COSMIC CATASTROPHES: This part concerns epic eruptions of energy on the surfaces of celestial bodies. These havoc events may mean only pinpricks on the gianter organisms such as the Jupiter, but they mean catastrophe from a human scale. Such cataclysms may also have exterminated dinosaurs from the earth 65 million years ago and made way for humans - a catastrophe for one species, a blessing for another.
