Plot keywords: asteroids astronomy comets earth life science

Throughout Earth’s violent history, impacts from comets and asteroids have mercilessly shaped its surface.

The ancient barrage continues today; from harmless meteors – those brilliant streaks in the night sky, to mountain sized boulders wandering perilously close to Earth.

Terrifying and majestic, these invaders from space are capable of utter destruction yet they have delivered life-giving water and most of the organic materials necessary for life.

Life on Earth owes its very existence to these denizens of the solar system, yet it could all be wiped out in an instant.

This ceaseless Firefall is our only tangible connection to the universe beyond and is an ever-present reminder of our own humble beginnings in the hostile environment of space.

Firefall is a well-made show that covers a topic not too often discussed. The show is expertly edited, so that flow is maintained throughout the program. The editors of this show knew what they were doing – each scene captures the audience’s attention, and lasts just as long as it needs to. Since asteroid impacts are the topic of the show, it features lots of (simulated) explosions, which help keep the interest of the younger crowd, and show in summary what the narrator is explaining. There’s not much to say about a show that you have no problems with, so this show gets 5 stars. I recommend seeing it if you have the opportunity, and showing it at your planetarium (if you own one).
