NOVA  "Meteor Strike"  A 7,000-ton asteroid crashes into the earth's atmosphere, explodes and falls to earth across a wide swath near the Ural Mountains on February 15, 2013. Dubbed the Siberian Meteor, it explodes with the power of 30 Hiroshima bombs, damaging buildings and sending more than 1,000 people to the hospital. Countless digital dashboard cameras record the event creating crowd-sourced data that allows NOVA crews and impact scientists to hit the ground in Russia in search of debris from the explosion, and clues to the meteor's origin and makeup. The program also explores some even greater explosions of the past, asking if Earth is in the cross-hairs of a celestrial shooting gallery.G

Surfer science using smart tech tracks ocean acidification and coastal temperatures in the Smartfin project, a recent startup. We spend "A Year in the Life of Citizen Science" including a Thanksgiving Monarch Butterfly Watch in California. Seasonal change is tracked by Latina and Native American teens in springtime in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and horseshoe crabs are surveyed in summer by retirees along mid-Atlantic coasts. In Uganda, World Bank economists and local partners generate data for sustainable development. The far-ranging potential of "Citizen Science in the Digital Age." Part 4 of 4G
