This year we celebrate the 25th launch anniversary of NASA’s NEAR-Shoemaker spacecraft and the 2021 launch of three new asteroid missions, NASA’s Lucy, NEA Scout and DART – the world’s first mission to test an asteroid deflection technique.
Asteroid Day LIVE 2021 will include interviews with key personnel from the missions of yesterday and tomorrow. Split into four segments, it will explore how technologies have changed, what scientific surprises were waiting on the asteroids, and what the future has in store for asteroid research and planetary defence.
