Smithsonian Lecture: The Sky Is Falling: Following the Trail of Meteorites

  • September 18, 2013 · 6:45 PM

We invite you to join us as Jim Zimbelman, an astrophysicist at the Air and Space Museum, and Linda Welzenbach, curator of the meteor collection at the Natural History Museum, look at the impact of meteorites on our planet and others.
Understand why we have long been captivated by objects streaking across the sky as you enjoy a program that includes:

• A discussion on current research efforts
• Hearing about findings of ongoing Antarctic
meteorite searches
• The chance to touch a meteorite
• And learning why that weird rock in your yard most likely isn’t one
