Cosmic Collisions

Image 1 / 10

Right now, massive meteors and asteroids are orbiting dangerously close to Earth. Scientists believe that it's not a question of if they'll strike again, but when. What type of damage could they cause? What can we do to stop a caroming asteroid that's headed toward us, or prevent future Near Earth Objects from lining us up in their sites? The fascinating ‘Cosmic Collisions' investigates Earth, cosmic galaxies and the solar system. ‘Cosmic Collisions' reveals everything there is to know about meteor clashes with our planet and how scientists are preparing for the next deadly assault on Earth. Then travel through our cosmic neighbourhood to examine how collisions created our moon, as the series investigates the solar system. Finally journey through space as ‘Cosmic Collisions' examines the cosmic battles being waged between celestial bodies- in a look at cosmic galaxies.
