Meteorite hunt



Museum of Science and Industry


Spotting​ ​rocks​ ​from​ ​space is​​ easy​ ​when​ ​​they’re still​ hurtling​ through ​​the ​​sky.​ ​But​ ​once​ ​they’ve landed, how​ can we​ tell them from​​ other​ boulders,​ stones​ or​ pebbles?

Hunt for meteorites as part of the Manchester Science Festival

​Try​ ​out​ ​some​ ​space​ sleuthing​ ​yourself​ ​by​ ​trying​ ​out​ ​the​ ​tricks​ ​and​ ​techniques ​used​ by​ astro-geologists ​​from the Earth​ ​and​ ​Solar​ ​System​ ​team​ ​at​ ​the​ ​University​ ​of​ Manchester.

Drop in anytime for this daytime workshop which is taking place as part of the Manchester Science Festival's Platform for Investigation workshop series.
