Abstract

High pressure experiments provide essential data for modeling planetary structure. Shock wave experiments are often especially suitable because they sample the same region of pressure-temperature space that is achieved naturally within the planet during its evolution. A very brief overview of planetary properties is given, followed by a summary of the issues of current interest: the behavior of hydrogen and hydrogen-rich mixtures; C, N, and O at high pressure, and rock-ice mixtures.
