The Older the Rock, the Brighter It Glows
Using Luminescence Dating to Determine the Ages of Rocks
Dr. Regina DeWitt from the OSU Physics Department will speak about a dating technique she has developed based on the natural ability rocks accumulate over time to luminesce. Dr. Dewitt's work is funded by NASA and her luminescence dating instrument may be selected for inclusion on a future Mars rover!
See you there!
