5 “Comets, Asteroids and Meteors: Great Balls of Fire” opens Saturday in the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History. The Space Science Institute’s National Center for Interactive Learning, with funding from the National Science Foundation and NASA, developed this national traveling exhibit.
“‘Great Balls of Fire’ allows us to explore how comets, asteroids and meteors are portrayed in pop culture,” said Morgan Day, museum spokesperson. “We think this will be an exhibit that interests everyone from kids to movie buffs to adults of all ages.”
 Museum visitors can determine whether Hollywood movie clips are “Science Fact or Science Fiction Theater.” They can contemplate what would happen if one of these objects was hurtling toward Earth and hit their neighborhood in the “What If It Hit My Town” interactive display. Visitors can even take part in a data-gathering mission as they climb aboard a spaceship and blast off to Jupiter. Divided into four areas, Origins, Asteroids, Comets and Impacts, the exhibit includes a variety of interactive multimedia experiences, ranging from straightforward computer-based activities to a larger scale “pod” in which visitors play the role of “explorers-in-training” — an important theme that threads throughout the exhibit.
The museum is located is on the University of Oklahoma Norman campus at J. Willis Stovall Road and Chautauqua Ave. in Norman.
