ALMA Recounts of Cosmic Conundrums

The European ARC network is launching the new virtual talk series "ALMA recounts of Cosmic Conundrums". In every talk of this series a major astronomical question is discussed. The invited speaker will describe the context of the question and then focuses on the ALMA contribution to the field, past and future. The aim of the series is to highlight the unparalleled contribution of ALMA to the broader astronomical landscape and to provide an outlook towards the future. The talks will be broadcasted through the Youtube channel of the European ALMA Regional Centre network and will remain available on the same channel afterwards.

What do comets tell us about the origin of Earth?

The next talk of the series will be presented by Nicolas Biver (Observatoire Paris-Site de Meudon), on June 1st at 14:00 CEST, who will address the question: What do comets tell us about the origin of Earth?  The talk will be broadcast on the Youtube channel of the European ALMA Regional Centre network.
