Chicxulub Impact Crater Expedition

>> Sign up to a live 30-45-minute “ship”-to-shore event during the Onshore Science Party of  the Chicxulub Impact Crater Expedition in Bremen, Germany from September 23 until October 4, 2016.

During the Onshore Science Party the cores collected offshore are split and opened. Scientists will have their first opportunity to study, and sample the cores in detail.

You will follow and ask questions to a scientific team working hard to learn more about what happened when a giant asteroid slammed into Earth approximately 65 million years ago.

Get prepared to the live video

Once your date is confirmed here are a few things we recommend to do:

  • read the blog of the expedition,
  • follow the expedition on Facebook and twitter,
  • have your audience brainstorm questions to submit to scientists and educators during the live video.
