Mercury and Beyond: How and Why We Explore the Planets

 How did the planets in our solar system form?  What are they made of?  And why are they so

different from one another?  These are some of the questions that Shaker resident Dr. Steven

A. Hauck,  Professor of Planetary Geodynamics at Case Western Reserve University, will

answer. While terrestrial telescopes have provided researchers a wealth of information over the

centuries, observations from unmanned spacecraft are leading to new realms of discovery. 

Programs such as NASA's MESSENGER mission to Mercury, in which Dr. Hauck served as a

participating scientist, have given us a tremendous amount of data regarding the structure and

nature of the planets.


Dr. Hauck is a planetary scientist who studies the evolution of interiors and surfaces of the

planets, including Earth.  During his 15 years at CWRU, Dr. Hauck has authored or co-authored

numerous publications; served as a peer reviewer; mentored dozens of graduate students, and

has been a featured speaker at many professional and public lectures.
