6:30-7:00pm: Speaker Henning Haack, Associate Researcher, MMGM:
Could the Earth be hit by an asteroid large enough to kill everything on the planet? If so, is there anything we can do about it? The answer to both of these questions is yes – but fortunately, this happens so rarely that it is highly unlikely that anybody will experience events like the ones you will see in “Deep Impact”.

7:00-7:15 pm: Director Barbra Barrett will be sharing some of the MMGM meteorites! Grab some food & drink.

7:15-9:15pm: Film “Deep Impact”, [PG-13], A comet is discovered to be on a collision course with Earth. As doomsday nears, the human race prepares for the worst.
