A new exhibition, GREAT BALLS OF FIRE! Comets, Asteroids, Meteors, makes its West Coast debut at the Fleet January 19! The threat of a catastrophic impact from an asteroid or comet is a staple of popular culture. If there was a dinosaur-killer in Earth's past, will humankind suffer the same fate? What are the chances and how do we assess the risks? For that matter, what are asteroids, comets, and meteorites, and where do they come from? Have you ever wondered about the origins of comets, asteroids and meteors? Or what they can tell us about Earth? GREAT BALLS OF FIRE! Comets, Asteroids, Meteors explores recent discoveries and cutting-edge science relating to these mysterious space rocks through hands-on activities, computer-based interactives, meteorite specimens, scale models and Asteroid Encounter, an immersive audio-visual experience!
