Micrometeorites: The extraterrestrials in your backyard
Presented by Dr. Lia Corrales

Every day about 100 tons of cosmic dust rain down upon the surface of the Earth. This talk will explore the phenomenon of micrometeorites and the journey that heavy elements take from space to your flower bed.
The event is free, but seating is limited in the planetarium.
