How to Defend the Earth from Asteroids

American Physical Society (APS)

The Chelyabinsk meteor caused extensive ground damage and numerous injuries when it exploded on impact with Earth’s atmosphere in February 2013; to prevent another such impact, Amy Mainzer and colleagues use a simple yet ingenious way to spot these tiny near-Earth objects as they hurtle toward the planet. She will outline the work of NASA’s Planetary Defense Coordination Office this week at the APS April Meeting in Denver -- including her team’s NEO recognition method and how it will aid the efforts to prevent future Earth impacts.
