We must prioritize planetary defence

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

"Speaking at the International Academy of Astronautics’ 2019 Planetary Defense Conference on April 29, NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine cautioned against the so-called ‘giggle factor’, whereby major asteroids are seen as more action movie territory than as a major threat.

Bridenstine has emphasized the importance of prioritizing planetary defense, stressing how this is just as crucial as other, more widely publicised NASA objectives such as the planned mission to Jupiter’s fourth-largest moon, Europa."

Definitely a cause for concern...Apophis is due back around in 2029 but they do not see an Earth collision as previously thought....NEA's are definitely out there but it's the one we don't see coming that will get us like the one in Russia one mentioned in the article.....Especially if it comes in from the Sun like the Russian one did....
