EP27 - Sunday, 22nd November 2020 7:30pm GMT - The Chelyabinsk Meteor by Ezzy Pearson

Recommended Posts

We have the pleasure of being joined this week by Ezzy Pearson (https://twitter.com/EzzyP) to give us a talk on 'The Chelyabinsk Meteor'.

Ezzy Pearson is a science writer and author of Robots in Space: The Secret Lives of Our Planetary Explorers. She is the News Editor of BBC Sky at Night Magazine.

Ezzy describes this talk as: On 15 February 2013 a meteor detonated over the industrial town of Chelyabinsk in Sibera. It showered space rocks down onto the surrounding landscape, drawing thousands of people to go hunting them. I was one of them, shooting a documentary for Channel 4 called Meteor Strike – Fireball from Space. This talk tells the story of both the meteor and my trip to see it.

I hope to see many of you join us Sunday to find out more about this meteorite and Ezzy's journey to see it 🙂
