Adler Team Searches For Space Rocks In The Lake

On an early Monday morning last February, a giant green flash appeared over Lake Michigan.

That flash was a car-sized meteor breaking up as it hit Earth’s atmosphere. 

Pieces of that meteor are sitting at the bottom of the lake, and the Adler Planetarium is on a mission to find those fragments in a mission called the Aquarius Project.

In this Morning Shift interview, you'll hear about the project, its unorthodox crew and the podcast that’s tracking its progress.

GUESTS: Aubrey Henretty-Adler Planetarium Senior Writer

Chris Bresky-Adler Planetarium teen programs manager, leading the Aquarius Project
