Join Dr Michael Simms for a chance to get up close and personal with the messengers from space… Meteorites!

From 14 June until early September some of the most extraordinary Meteorites to have fallen to Earth will be on display in the Ulster Museum. There will be pieces of the Moon and of Mars, a chunk of the oldest volcanic rock yet discovered in the Solar System, a slice of one of the strangest meteorites of all from a planet that once existed in the outer reaches of the solar system, and more.

This event is a chance to hear from one of the foremost minds in astronomy and to get up close and personal with the far reaches of the solar system.
