BAPS  Conference

Professor Myriam Telus and the Planetary Sciences group at UCSC hosted the annual Bay Area Planetary Sciences (BAPS) conference  on September 19th. The meeting was a great success with over 80 participants from different institutions in the region, including Stanford, UC Davis, UC Berkeley, NASA Ames, LLNL and SETI. The conference took place at the Seymour Marine Discovery Center on UCSC’s coastal campus. The conference was funded through grants from the Heising-Simons Foundation and the Meteoritical Society. The Bay Area Planetary Science group was started in 2019 to bolster collaborations and community among planetary scientists in the San Francisco Bay Area.
