Simulcast: March 11 1999, 11:00 - 11:30 am Pacific (2:00 - 2:30 pm Eastern)
Asteroids get a lot of attention. It's no wonder - small ones
continually pelt the Earth and a large one may have caused the
extinction of the dinosaurs. But that's just part of their story.
Space missions to orbit and map a near-Earth asteroid for the first
time will help us discover more about these "minor planets," and could
reveal clues about the formation of our solar system...Get answers to
your questions about asteroids directly from the scientists keeping
tabs on them. And, see a sneak preview of NASA's exciting plans to
put a rover on an asteroid!
This 30-minute simulcast is now available as three Quicktime movies. A Quicktime 3.0 player
is required to run the movies.
