Sarah Stewart Named American Physical Society Fellow for Research on Evolution of Planetary Systems
How did the Earth and moon come to be?
For her landmark work in the development and application of shock physics techniques to explain the origin and evolution of planetary systems, Sarah Stewart has been selected as an American Physical Society Fellow.
The prestigious honor is one that no more than half of one percent of the society’s membership (excluding student members) are nominated for each year.
Stewart's nomination stems from her revolutionary theory that the moon formed within the Earth when the planet existed as an astronomical object called a synestia.
