Asteroids. To some, they mean standing in arcades by the sea and shooting pixelated blobs with a rubbish tiny spaceship; to others, they incite images of Bruce Willis stumbling around and blowing one of the poor things up. But what about the reality, i.e. the gigantic lumps of space rock hurtling around with no care, on the one hand presenting a real danger to life as we know it, on the other offering clues to future space exploration and the harvesting of resources. Narrated by alien bothering Hollywood star Sigourney Weaver, this visually stunning show takes you on a journey to examine what it takes for astronauts to reach an asteroid, the real threat they pose and what we can do about it (hint: not sending a bald action star carrying a thermo-nuclear device).
