I was on the edge of my seat at 3.30 pm 6th August in N.S.W. Australia and when the notification was made that it had landed, I was jumping around like those in the control room, also knowing that what we were watching was being transmitted around the world from a few hundred kilometers from my home - Canberra. It was deja vue. When I was in the Military I watched the Moon landing again been transmitted from a few hundred kilometers from my home - Parkes.
An asteroid or comet headed for Earth is the only large-scale natural disaster we can prevent. Working together to fund our Shoemaker NEO Grants for astronomers, we can help save the world.
