MR010:
Exploring the Deep Interior of Giant Planets, Exoplanets and their Satellites in Silico and in the Laboratory





Session ID#: 23457

Session Description:
The vast progresses in outer-space observation (via the Kepler telescope, Juno mission, etc) in recent years have inspired unprecedented enthusiasm toward understanding planetary interiors. Dynamic and static compression experiments together with computer simulations have demonstrated tremendous abilities in emulating the extreme pressure, temperature conditions and uncovering mysteries in astrophysics. We propose a session focusing on exploring the deep interiors of giant planets, exoplanets, and their moons. We welcome contributions reporting high-pressure experiments, ab initio simulations, and theory/other numerical studies on the properties of the constituents of these planetary bodies, in particular low-Z gases (hydrogen, helium, neon, argon, etc), ices (water, methane, ammonia, carbon dioxide, etc), silicate and oxide minerals, and iron alloys as well as their mixtures or analogs, under relevant pressures and temperatures.
