The Association of Space Explorers invites viewers to join their Asteroid Day live webinar on June 29th, 2021 at 12 pm CDT with an expert panel discussing progress, problems, and challenges in defending Earth from dangerous cosmic impacts. Using our space skills toolkit, we the crew of Spaceship Earth can prevent these destructive natural disasters. But we must improve our early warning telescopes, catalog millions of asteroid orbits, and practice international cooperation in using space technology to deflect near-Earth asteroids and comets. Learn about the latest efforts to prevent asteroid impacts, and how you can support efforts to ward off these hazardous objects. We also welcome you to join a question-and-answer session with our ASE Asteroid Day panel.
