METEORITES-EVENT.jpg

Most everyone knows that a meteorite impact killed the dinosaurs but do we need to worry about the same fate?  Dr. Charles Kuehn from the University of Northern Colorado will tell us about how often meteorites hit the Earth, how much damage they can do, can they actually be helpful, and what can be done if a big one is headed our way (hint, the movie Armageddon got it wrong).  Then Dr. Cynthia Galovich will talk about radiation, when it can be dangerous and just how dangerous, and when it can be helpful.  Join us for fascinating science, trivia and prizes, and great beer.  There will also be a chance to hold an actual meteorite and to use a Geiger counter to examine some common, everyday objects.
