Fascinating talks and workshops to complement our Whitby and the Cosmos exhibition!

Meteorites in Yorkshire, and from across the World!
Meteorites are a key part of understanding the cosmos. These extra-terrestrial samples reveal dramatic ancient events across the Solar System. Among thousands from across the world, three meteorites have been found in Yorkshire. Expert analyst Tony Kearsley will show how modern techniques reveal evaporation, melting and crystallisation of rocks, catastrophic collisions between asteroids as well as impact cratering on Earth.
Tony Kearsley is a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society and former Microanalyst at the Natural History Museum in London.
