Wednesday, November 20, 8PM @ the Bell House, FREE! Secret Science Club presents Asteroid: Doomsday or Payday?

Grab your space boots, hold on to your wigs and keys, and have us pour you a cosmic cocktail . . .

Secret Science Club is blasting into the stratosphere with a special live screening of Asteroid: Doomsday or Payday? from NOVA. 

Last February a meteor exploded over Chelyabinsk, Russia, setting off a shock wave 30 times more powerful than an atomic bomb. And that was just a hiccup. More than 10,000 asteroids and comets are known to pass just a cosmic whisper from Earth. How are astrophysicists working to track, detect—and even deflect—space rocks that could threaten the planet? And why are some scientists and entrepreneurs looking at the same orbiting objects and seeing (literally) golden opportunities? 
Prepare to defend the Earth . . .
