This Anniversary is a Real Blast
Tomorrow is the 100th anniversary of the explosive arrival of a large object from space in Siberia on June 30, 1908. The issue of detecting asteroids or comets in the vicinity of Earth's orbit around the Sun, known as Near Earth Objects (NEOs), and responding to, preferably by deflection, of those that threaten to impact our planet, has gained attention in recent years. The B612 Foundation has as its purpose development of NEO deflection methods. Also, the citizens' space agenda organization Prospace (of which I am a member of the Board of Directors) included NEOs in this years 'March Storm' agenda.
