Dr. Moses P. Milazzo will give a brief, and incomplete tour of catastrophic geology of the Solar System.
Dr. Milazzo studied Planetary Sciences and Geosciences at the University of Arizona and has participated in numerous planetary missions, including the Galileo Orbiter's mission to Jupiter, Cassini's mission to Saturn, and the very-high-resolution HiRISE camera onboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter currently in orbit at Mars. His research has centered on two topics: remote sensing and planetary volcanism; he has studied active volcanoes on Jupiter's moon, Io and on the Earth and extinct volcanoes on Mars and on the Moon.
Dr. Milazzo was born on and grew up on a ranch a mile east of Flagstaff. He attended Leupp Elementary School and Sinagua High School. He moved to Tucson to earn a B.S. in Mathematics and a Ph.D. in Planetary Science. In 2008, he returned to Flagstaff to work as a geophysicist at the Astrogeology Science Center at the U.S. Geological Survey. In the summer of 2013, he left the USGS to teach algebra and computer science at BASIS Flagstaff. After a year of teaching, Dr. Milazzo has returned to doing remote sensing and planetary science.
