In the last 10 million years, two supernovae have exploded at distances that allowed their remnants to engulf the solar system and shower Earth with their debris.  By delving into the geologic record, we can find traces of these events in the form of live (un-decayed) radioactive isotopes.  Analysis of these signals has allowed us to extract key supernova properties, such as the duration of the debris fallout on Earth and a distance range to the progenitor.For this defense, I will discuss the extent of the supernova-produced radioactive signals detected on Earth and the Moon, as well as their astronomical implications.  The observed fallout timescale is an order of magnitude larger than expected from conventional supernova shock fronts, which has significant ramifications on the remnant's dust dynamics.  Similarly, the possible distance range to the progenitor can be used as a limiting factor on the theoretical calculations of ejected mass and dust survival fractions.Here's the link:Topic: Adrienne Ertel's DefenseTime: Jul 7, 2022 10:00 AM Central Time (US and Canada)Join Zoom Meetinghttps://illinois.zoom.us/j/86051072216?pwd=ozR7tMQ97wlO8GWorLX3Vq5eS-LHBV.1Meeting ID: 860 5107 2216Password: 288429One tap mobile+13126266799,,86051072216# US (Chicago)+12678310333,,86051072216# US (Philadelphia)Dial by your location         +1 312 626 6799 US (Chicago)         +1 267 831 0333 US (Philadelphia)         +1 301 715 8592 US (Washington DC)         +1 470 250 9358 US (Atlanta)         +1 470 381 2552 US (Atlanta)         +1 646 518 9805 US (New York)         +1 651 372 8299 US (Minnesota)         +1 786 635 1003 US (Miami)         +1 929 205 6099 US (New York)         +1 213 338 8477 US (Los Angeles)         +1 253 215 8782 US (Tacoma)         +1 346 248 7799 US (Houston)         +1 602 753 0140 US (Phoenix)         +1 669 219 2599 US (San Jose)         +1 669 900 6833 US (San Jose)         +1 720 928 9299 US (Denver)         +1 971 247 1195 US (Portland)         +1 778 907 2071 Canada         +1 438 809 7799 Canada         +1 587 328 1099 Canada         +1 647 374 4685 Canada         +1 647 558 0588 Canada         +49 695 050 2596 Germany         +49 69 7104 9922 Germany         +44 203 481 5237 United Kingdom         +44 203 481 5240 United Kingdom         +44 131 460 1196 United Kingdom         +81 3 4578 1488 Japan         +61 3 7018 2005 Australia         +61 8 7150 1149 Australia         +61 2 8015 6011 Australia         +52 554 161 4288 MexicoMeeting ID: 860 5107 2216Password: 288429Find your local number: https://illinois.zoom.us/u/kcRIe9c2YvJoin by SIP86051072216@zoomcrc.comJoin by H.323162.255.37.11 (US West)162.255.36.11 (US East)221.122.88.195 (China)115.114.131.7 (India Mumbai)115.114.115.7 (India Hyderabad)213.19.144.110 (Amsterdam Netherlands)213.244.140.110 (Germany)103.122.166.55 (Australia Sydney)103.122.167.55 (Australia Melbourne)209.9.211.110 (Hong Kong SAR)64.211.144.160 (Brazil)69.174.57.160 (Canada Toronto)65.39.152.160 (Canada Vancouver)207.226.132.110 (Japan Tokyo)149.137.24.110 (Japan Osaka)Meeting ID: 860 5107 2216Password: 288429Join by Skype for Businesshttps://illinois.zoom.us/skype/86051072216
