Twelve episodes in total, this short, fast-paced and funny series hosted by one of our speakers and two-time Emmy winner Geoff Notkin will give you all the information you need about meteorites.


Scientists Rock is a seven-part film series that brings to light the origins of Asteroid Day and the importance of asteroid detection, deflection, asteroid characterization, and having an emergency response plan.
