Asteroid Foundation’s annual Asteroid Day activities are back for 2022! This year’s Asteroid Day LIVE programme theme is all about: “small is beautiful”. In recent years, astronomers have been bringing small but beautiful samples of asteroids to Earth. Despite their size, analysis shows they are an invaluable link between the meteorite collections on Earth and the wider population of asteroids, unlocking the history of our solar system and giving clues to the future of space exploration.
Confirmed invitees include NASA astronauts Steve Smith and Ed Lu, ESA astronaut Michel Tognini, and Christer Fuglesang, Cosmonaut Dorin Purnariu, Planetary Scientist Patrick Michel, Research Scientist Naomi Murdoch and many more! Asteroid Day LIVE will be hosted on June 30th in Luxembourg – details on how to tune in coming soon.
