The newest episode in the series is called Astrogeology: Meteorites and Spacecraft Missions. Meet Dr. Tim McCoy, geologist at the National Museum of Natural History. Have you ever wondered how we study asteroids and other bodies in our solar system without sending spacecraft to all of them? Meteorites, pieces from space that hurtle to Earth, turn out to be great sources of information. Take a meteorite-filled journey with Tim McCoy to outer space and back in time to the formation of our solar system and learn how meteorites contain the very building blocks of life on Earth.

Other programs from the series -- Reading Ocean Fossils, The Natural History of the Cellphone, and Mummy Science -- will follow.
