An impact by a large comet or asteroid has the potential to end civilization. Yet these near-Earth objects also offer tantalizing clues to the solar system's origins and, someday, could serve as stepping-stones to space exploration. Donald Yeomans introduces the science of near-Earth objects, its history, applications, and ongoing quest to find near-Earth objects before they find us. Book signing to follow.

Venue Description: A museum for the 21st century, with a rich and storied past and one of the greatest natural history museums in the world, with over 40 exhibition halls. Open daily from 10am to 5:45pm except on Thanksgiving and Christmas.
