Impact Earth: A Smart Look at What’s Coming Our Way February 10, 2010Posted by skywalking1 in Space.
“Impact Earth is a fulldome planetarium show that teaches about meteors, meteorites, asteroids and comets. It includes the results from recent NASA missions and about the dangers they can pose to life on Earth…”
“The DVD was created for informal science venues (digital planetariums) and is also useful as ancillary material for middle school science.”
You can read more about the show and content at this site. Meantime, if you’re visiting Houston, check out the Brenham pallasite meteorite uncovered in a Kansas field by geologists using a ground-penetrating radar. The meteorite is on view at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. These objects, fragments of near-Earth objects, remind us of the larger asteroids that pose a continuing threat to our planet.
