Event details

Space is out there and if we ever want to get hold of things out there we need some serious technology. If some space stuff decides to visit us it comes usually in the shape of meteorites which are rare finds and asteroids which bring along substantial dangers to us on Earth. But it might come as a surprise that we all get rained upon nearly every day with out-of-space material.

In Dr D Brown's (NTU) talk It's Raining Space Rocks he will be outlining how this surprising statement is actually true, what these micrometeorites are and what they can tell us. Most interestingly, the talk will also outline how you can find these in your own home without any specialised equipment.

Given the current COVID-19 situation, this event is not taking place as a public NTU event. However, Dr D Brown (NTU) will provide an online talk on this topic to everyone who is booked onto this event. We will email a link to the material on YouTube to everyone who has booked. We will be happy to answer questions posted during the talk.
