3:30 pm Firefall Recommended Audience grades 5 – 12, adults 8:00 pm Firefall
Throughout Earth’s violent history, impacts from comets and asteroids have mercilessly shaped its surface. The ancient barrage continues today; from harmless meteors – those brilliant streaks in the night sky, to mountain sized boulders wandering perilously close to Earth. Terrifying and majestic, these invaders from space are capable of utter destruction yet they have delivered life-giving water and most of the organic materials necessary for life. Features the stunning artwork of Joe Tucciarone, YSU alum and noted space artist, and music by Troy McClellan, another YSU alum and planetarium student worker.
