About this event

Join us as Research Scientist Dr. Maria Valdes discusses her work on lunar evolution.

In this session, Maria Valdes will discuss lunar meteorites and theories of moon formation.

Please note, there will be members of the media present during this session.

Scientists, researchers, and collections managers are behind the scenes every day, uncovering new information and taking care of our collection.

During Meet a Scientist, you can find them in the Grainger Science Hub. They'll discuss their work and share real items from the museum’s collection of nearly 40 million objects. From collections care to field work, and dinosaurs to ecology, there’s a world of science to explore.

Visit the Science Hub on select weekdays for an up-close look at what our researchers do every day.

This Meet a Scientist session is held in conjunction with the Field Museum’s Women’s History Month programming and Field Museum Women in Science.
