Natural History Museum meteorite expert to give talk in Wanstead


The Natural History Museum’s Curator of Meteorites will be giving a talk at Wanstead House this month.

“Dr Natasha Almeida will be discussing meteorites, the far-flung remnants of the solar system that come crashing down to Earth,” said Steve Karpel of the North East London Astronomical Society, which is hosting the 17 November event (3pm; first visit free).

Dr Almeida’s research focuses on the use of micro-computed tomography in the study of extraterrestrial material, including meteorites and NASA Apollo samples.
