Laboratory for Extraterrestrial Physics
Brown Bag Seminar
About the Seminar
Laboratory for Extraterrestrial Physics (LEP) at NASA's
Goddard Space Flight Center
conducts weekly science seminars.
They are held on Fridays at noon in the Conference Room (Room 8) in
at Goddard. The topics cover the interests of the Laboratory, including
astrochemistry, interplanetary physics, planetary systems, planetary
magnetospheres, and electrodynamics. Since the seminar is conducted during
the lunch hour, the audience often brings their lunch, hence the moniker
"brown bag seminar."
Have an Idea for a Speaker?
The seminar organizers are always appreciative of ideas for seminar speakers.
