Hot Science - Cool Talk \"Fire Ants, Crazy Ants & Zombie Ants\"

October, 26 2018

Time: 7:00 PM - 8:15 PM
Location: Student Activity Center (SAC), UT Campus

The red imported fire ant is an invasive species in Texas that can produce life-threatening allergic reactions in people, has major costs to agriculture, and causes severe impacts to native fauna. Dr. Rob Plowes shares insights into fire ant behavior and discusses a remarkable biological control opportunity. Dr. Plowes researches one of the fire ant\'s deadliest enemies - tiny phorid flies, which actually turn ants into zombie-like living incubators for their offspring! He also describes research approaches to other invasive species in Texas. We invite you to join us for a special Halloween celebration. Participate in our costume contest: come as your favorite creature or zombie!

Title: Global Geology of Titan from Cassini

Abstract: Titan has shown itself to be one of the solar system\'s most intriguing objects for study, with a variety of unusual candidate materials on its surface, such as seas of liquid hydrocarbons. Titan is very geologically complex, and features found from Cassini data include large craters, cryovolcanoes, mountains, flowing channels, vast fields of dunes, and rivers, lakes and seas of methane. Titan is very Earth-like in its geology, despite the very different surface conditions and composition, and has become known as \"the Earth of the outer solar system\". This talk will discuss the global distribution and origin of different surface units.
