The 1997 documentary Cosmic Travellers: Comets and Asteroids shows an era of excitement and fear about the possibilities of space. Predating the modern technology propelling us through space exploration today, the scientists studying the travel paths of comets and asteroids give us an insight on their research. From simulations of an asteroid impact on Earth, to sending astronauts to their surface, we’ll learn of the ways we can use comets to study the origins of life, and the catastrophic disasters that could be looming in our future.
