What happens when the sky falls?

Dr John Kennewell, Director of the Australian Space Academy and Distinguished Associate of the International Centre of Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR), takes us on a journey about space debris and shares with us the possibility of it landing on WA soil.

There are approximately 80 pieces of space debris that fall from orbit each year and, while most debris falls into the ocean, sometimes it lands on earth. Re-entering Space Debris is a show that highlights the difficulty of tracking these objects as they crash through the atmosphere and how we should react when they do. A demonstration will also be given on how to recognise and distinguish between a satellite, meteor, fireball and a re-entry event, plus a large Western Australian re-entry will be analysed.

This show is free, but bookings are essential and can be made through the Scitech website.
