To mark #AsteroidDay, we’ve got a whole day of #asteroid content ready for you. Stay on board to learn how and why we study asteroids with spacecraft, and how we protect Earth from them colliding with us. We'll even look at #SpaceMining!
#AsteroidDay was founded by astrophysicist @DrBrianMay, Astronaut Rusty Schweickart Filmmaker @GrigRichters; and B612 President Danica Remy, to encourage the public and governments to learn more about asteroids and the role they play in our Solar System.
#AsteroidDay marks the anniversary of the largest asteroid impact in recorded history, Tunguska, 1908. Such impacts are part of the reason scientists study asteroids, working on resources to search for and deflect asteroids from Earth-crossing orbits.
