Exploring Space Lectures

The 2005 Exploring Space Lectures

The 2005 Exploring Space Lectures, Rocks in Space: Asteroid, Comets, and Moons, will feature four world-renowned scientists discussing the latest research and images of these ancient "worlds." Lectures will include current and future programs exploring the remnants of the Solar System's earliest days.

This year's lecture series will explore key questions surrounding these ancient rocks in space. What are they made of? What is their history? How have they influenced Earth's past and how might they affect its future?
