PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) – With the recent events occurring in our atmosphere, many people have started looking towards the sky for answers. For example, the meteor over Russia caused quite a stir when the meteorite crash landed. Studies show that meteors are always falling in to our atmosphere, they just vary in sizes.
The Program Development Communicator, Robert Marshall, and Senior Scientist at the Carnegie Science Center, Dr. John Radzilowicz, joined KDKA Radio’s Mike Pintek to field some of the hard-hitting questions relating to science. The pair both work at the Buhl Planetarium where they enjoy researching the planets and stars. They explained that a meteor like the one that killed the dinosaurs would have to be 6 miles in length.
A caller requested further information regarding the Tesla Coil that once was in the planetarium and was pleased to hear that the coil is still in the “works theater” part of the center.
