Comets, asteroids and crashes!

Rocky asteroids and icy comets – Robert Massey from the Royal Astronomical Society will introduce us to some of the intriguing objects that share our Solar System and our changing perception of them through history.

There’s also a chance to see real meteorites from the museum collection and a demonstration of how to put a comet together using (mostly) commonly available ingredients.

Part of a series of lectures sponsored by the Friends of Bristol Museums, Galleries & Archives.

Please note, the lecture takes place at Tyndall Lecture Theatre, University of Bristol NOT Bristol Museum & Art Gallery. Parking can be difficult so please allow an extra 15 minutes to allow plenty of time. Access on foot is via the Royal Fort entrance, along the path and to the left.
