This talk by Simon Holbeche of Bath Astronomers follows the dust from supernova to your garden. After the creation of the Solar System there was still a lot of dust around and for billions of years, as the finest of grains or the largest of space rocks, has been drawn in by Earth’s mass and created spectacular fireworks in our skies for dinosaurs and the humans alike as huge quantities of rock are vaporised each day.
This event takes place as part of the Marlborough Dark Skies Fest 2021.
