Hi Geoff Notkin and List!
Is there any update on what happened to the 3-part TV series
"Cosmic Collisions" ? Discovery Channel aired one part, but then
nothing else - unless I went into a coma and missed it. I really
wanted to see the episode that focuses on meteorites. Does anyone
know if it was aired or not? And is there anywhere I can purchase
it on DVD?
Thanks and clear skies!
