Asteroids: Deadly Impact

Asteroids: Deadly Impact
45:00 | 1997

Categories: Science and Environment

Every year, millions of asteroids and comets or ''stray bullets'' streak through the skies, and tons of small meteorites strike our planet! Some 65 million years ago, dinosaurs were wiped off the face of the earth, in what many believe was the aftermath of a massive cosmic collision. Could something like this happen again? Scientists believe that the impact of an asteroid only a mile wide would be globally catastrophic. Join extraordinary geologist Eugene Shoemaker and his wife Carolyn who have remapped the heavens with their discoveries of more than 30 comets and hundreds of asteroids. Now that we know what's out there, how can we defend ourselves?

I followed Gen Shoemaker's career until his untimely death not to long after this documentary was aired in 1997. He was a gift to humanity. He saw a danger to us we didn't even know existed. Because of Gene Shoemaker humanity is watching the skies with a profound new understanding of the dangers and how we can confront and avoid them. God bless him
