Asteroids and Comets Make an IMPACT at Longmont Public Library
If you have not yet explored the Asteroids and Comets hands-on, mini-science exhibit at the Longmont Public Library, then rocked down here quickly — this display will be blasting off to a new site at the end of May! This NASA and NSF-funded display is located inside the west entrance to the Library. Be sure to play the “Death by Asteroid: What Are the Odds?” game. It certainly puts things in perspective.
