About The Event
Comets are much more than pretty objects in the sky. We have evidence of major impacts over history both on Earth and elsewhere in the Solar System. David will tell us the latest thinking as to how cometary impacts have fundamentally influenced the evolution of life on Earth.
After the talk, you'll have the opportunity to peruse and (maybe) buy examples of meteorites discovered in various locations around the world. Who wouldn't want a beautiful meteorite as a Christmas present?
