Press Release: Talking Science - Asteroids, Comets, and Meteors, Oh My!

As the Dawn Spacecraft nears the dwarf planet Ceres, we are learning more about this enigmatic object out in the Asteroid Belt. We already know that it expels water plumes... Could it also hold a warm liquid water ocean under its surface? We will talk about why some things are called asteroids, but other things are called comets, and what the links between them are. We will also talk about different kinds of asteroids, and where they might all come from.

7 PM PST (SLT) Thursday at the Meridian Cafe!
