Incoming! Studying and avoiding near-Earth asteroids and comets

Pasadena, California, United States

The Planetary Society returns to KPCC In Person's Crawford Family Forum for another Planetary Radio Live hosted by Mat Kaplan. We’ll hear how the sky is being watched and explore the early thinking about how to protect Earth and civilization. There’s a lot of work under way, from spacecraft that visit these miniature worlds to the hundreds of amateur astronomers who help find and track them. More information>>
