Stardust memories: 50 years of the Murchison meteorite

Wednesday 20 November, 6.00pm–7.30pm

When a meteorite exploded in the atmosphere over Murchison, about 160km north of Melbourne, on 28 September 1969, it sounded like the roar of an express train. Mineralogist Dermot Henry will explain why its composition is so significant making it one of the most extensively studied meteorites in the world.
