FIREBALL: VISITORS FROM DARKER WORLDS

ColeSmithey.comWerner Herzog takes us to meteorite school.

With his signature dry delivery, Cinema's editorializing master places Cambridge Professor of Volcanology, Clive Oppenheimer in front of the camera to take us on a learning excursion.

Societies always apply historical significance to the moment of big meteor strikes.

Cool.

Herzog and Oppenheimer travel around the globe to such sites to dig deeper into the varied cultural import of the space dust that we are all made of.
