The first moon landing occurred while on my annual summer visit with my father. We rushed home from a family outing just in time to turn on the TV and watch Neil Armstrong's first steps on the moon. I was 15 years old and had no interest in science up to that point. I was utterly captivated that such a feat could be accomplished. It was a life changing event for me and sparked an interest in astronomy and space discovery that has only grown over the years.
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.
