Humans have observed meteors and collected meteorites for thousands of years. Yet, it wasn’t until the early 1800s that scientists began to accept that such rocks actually came from space, not Earth. Why? University of Arkansas Museum Curator Laurel Lamb will explore this question and more in “Rocks from the Sky”! Stop by to learn about meteorites, their place in human history (including one found in NWA Arkansas!), and see a few of them from the Museum’s collections.
