Simultaneous Major Meteor Impacts in Antarctica: A Free, Virtual Lecture

July 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free (but donations appreciated)

Major meteor strikes can be disastrous, e.g., on Feb. 15, 2013, when a house-sized meteor exploded 14 miles above Chelyabinsk, Russia the shock wave blew out windows in over 200 square miles and injured 1,600 people. Over 45,000 meteorites have been found in Antarctic and its estimated that another 300,000 are still out there; each one tells a story about the our solar system and its development. Prof. Alan Rice conducted research on the occurrence and consequences of multiple meteoric impacts in Antarctica while working at Stony Brook University, and in Earth & Planetary Sciences at the American Museum of Natural History.
