 Join us as we share key ideas regarding space rocks and their potential risks to our planet. What is the difference between an asteroid, meteor, meteoroid, and meteorite? What would happen if a giant meteorite or comet impacted Earth or even NYS? Would civilization as we know it continue to exist? How would the environment be affected? These are important questions that society must consider. Most scientists agree it is not a matter of if, but when, the next giant meteorite will impact Earth in the future. What is the latest research on this alarming topic and what do we know about the large asteroid that will do a near Earth flyby in 2029 and again in 2036?
