Last episode we asked, what if a killer asteroid was headed towards the India. This episode, we're exploring how people find bits of asteroids that do crash into India from time to time. And why go looking for meteorites at all - what's in it for us? This episode is an Imagined Tomorrow Short, where we take a detour to discuss an idea sparked by a future we previously explored.
