Description

Asteroids are remnants from the early solar system and little changed for the past 4 billion years, so they hold clues to the formation of the planets and possibly even to life. Come listen to the latest news about these small but important bodies, including from the Japanese Hayabusa 2 sample return mission, and (3-D printer willing) hold some asteroid models in your hands!
