EXTRA! EXTRA! Read all about it!
Meteorite Headlines, our newest special exhibit in the Crossroads Gallery, showcases meteorites that have made headline news. Why? Because they’ve hit our things and even people!
At the center of this exhibit is a 1980 Chevrolet Malibu struck by the Peekskill Meteorite in 1992. Other featured casualties include a mailbox, a window, a radio, and even a termite that was killed by these rocks from space.
Our very own Cartersville Meteorite and the pieces of the house it struck will also be featured in this exhibit. Along with the fascinating stories of these news-making meteorites, you will also learn about different types of meteorites and how to distinguish between meteorites and “meteor-wrongs.”
