Dynamic loading of matter occurs during astrophysical impacts, and also in laboratory experiments on the response of materials to extreme conditions. These properties, in particular the equation of state (EOS), are also important in understanding the structure and evolution of planets and stars.

Dr. Anat Shahar (Carnegie Institution for Science)
Why is Earth habitable? Where will life be detected elsewhere? What type of planet is most likely to sustain life? Beyond Earth, what are the characteristics of a habitable planet?
This talk will present more questions than answers but will show you how we at Carnegie, along with our international collaborators, are tackling these questions in order to understand the origin of habitable planets.
