Lecture, “Meteorites or Meteor-wrongs?”
On Sunday, November 14, Curator of Geology J. Chris Sagebiel will present a lecture “Meteorites or Meteor-wrongs?” at 2pm the San Bernardino County Museum in Redlands. This program is included in paid museum admission.
“Why are there different kinds of meteorites?” asked Sagebiel. “How does one identify a meteorite? If this heavy rock isn’t a meteorite, what could it possibly be? What we can learn about our planet and our solar system from meteorites? How common are they?” Sagebiel will also talk about the meteorite exhibit planned for the museum’s new Hall of Geological Wonders.
