What Meteors Reveal About Earth’s Hidden Past

From Reactions.

Our planet has been rocked by many-a-meteorite, and they’ve left not just themselves as space debris but also craters and even molecules needed for life. Now we’ve started to travel to them, and they might be a key part of our forays into deep space. In this episode of #Untold, a new #YouTubeLearning series from ACS, PBS, and YouTube, we’re talking about #meteors and asteroids, and why they should matter to those of us living down here on earth.
