This month’s topic

Incoming!: Asteroids, Comets, and the Hard-Hitting Stories of Our Cosmic Origins

Embark on a journey back in time and across the Solar System, following the paths of asteroids and comets that have collided with Earth, and their impact can be so powerful that just one collision can change the course of life on our planet. Scientists aren't waiting for asteroids and comets to come to us to learn more about them - get an up-close look at spacecraft sent to rocket asteroids and icy comets to collect invaluable data. You'll visualize major shifts in the history of the Solar System billions of years in the making - and all in under an hour.
