Drop a rock on your town
(Dec 27, 2012)
Visit the “Killer Asteroids” exhibit at College Hill Library, 3705 W. 112th Ave., through January to learn about comets, asteroids and the risk of earth impacts.
Find out how backyard astronomers help scientists learn about asteroids, try your hand at deflecting a “rubble pile” asteroid and, yes, drop an asteroid on your town and see just how bad the damage would be.
This exhibit was funded through grants from NASA and the National Science Foundation.
The exhibit is located on the second floor next to the reference desk.
