Asteroids: Vermin of the Sky

McCallion Planetarium (BSB B149)
November 08, 2017 from 07:00PM until 08:00PM

Will an asteroid impact someday cause the extinction of the human race? Asteroids can destroy life, but they may have also been necessary to form life in the first place. These vermin of the sky have secrets to the origin of life preserved in their interiors; waiting to be revealed by future sample-return spacecraft. They are also an untapped source of ultra-high-grade precious metals and rocket fuel. This show will cover everything there is to know about asteroids. Come learn about one of the most precarious threats to human existence.

McMaster’s McCallion Planetarium is located in the basement of the Burke Science Building (BSB).
