Jared Freed

Jared Freed, age 13

Florida, United States

Proposed name: Haldor

Justification for the name: "In Nordic mythology, it translates to Thor's Rock. In mythology, Thor is supposed to come down to Earth, and get rid of evil. According to the Sentry Risk Table, it shows that it has a collision threat to Earth. The asteroid would be moving the same way that Thor would towards Earth. If collision occurs, it would surely end all evil, but it would end all good too."

What do you want to see next in space? "I would like to see more thorough research done with Black Holes, White Holes, and Wormholes. Although they are an unexplained phenomena, I feel that if we dig deep enough, we can find the key to many important scientific discoveries."

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.
