The Asteroid Foundation’s annual Asteroid Day LIVE program returns in person Thursday, June 30, 2022 at 11:00 Central European Time (CET). Astronauts, experts and science communicators from across the world will converge on Luxembourg to discuss the importance of asteroid research, missions, and advances in space-based technologies.

Seven panel discussions will tell the full story of asteroids; from the formation of the Solar System, 4.6 billion years ago, to the scientific work taking place today, and our future prospects as we begin to imagine ways to utilize the resources asteroids contain. Also spotlighted is how can we defend Earth if and when we spot a threatening asteroid.

Asteroid Day is held on June 30 each year to mark the date of Earth’s largest asteroid impact in recorded history: the Tunguska, Siberia event.
