Wonderfest: Hunting Asteroids

Carrie Nugent

The dinosaurs (and 75% of all earthly species!) learned the hard way: asteroids eventually mean trouble - on a planetary scale. From the meteor that exploded over Chelyabinsk in 2013, to the asteroid/comet that caused a mass extinction 66 million years ago, space "debris" is important. Fortunately, a global team of dedicated astronomers - including Caltech's Carrie Nugent - finds and tracks asteroids throughout the solar system. Come learn about the nature, origin, and global lethality of our solar system's numerous mini-worlds.

Speaker: Dr. Carrie Nugent, Caltech
