The combination of growing up in a small town feeling very confined by society and seeing the limitless possibilities of the universe in the desert sky sparked my passion for space. I left that small town and I have traveled around this rock but still often experience that same confinement. Every time I see the stars in the sky my heart still skips a beat. To me it is a feeling of seeing long lost friends. We belong out there! Exploring, searching, traveling to see what it out there!
They are Watching the Skies for You!
Our researchers, worldwide, do absolutely critical work.
Asteroid 2012DA14 was a close one.
It missed us. But there are more out there.
