MoN proudly presents:

+ + + Killer Asteroids from Space + + +
By Dr. Henry Throop

Boom!!! Our all time favourite MoN member and one of the best speakers of our galaxy, Dr. Henry Throop is back with a new talk, this time on asteroids!
Members who have attended earlier talks will confirm... you so don't want to miss this lively event!

+ + + Killer Asteroids from Space + + +

From the meteor that killed off the dinosaurs 65 million years ago, to the Chelyabinsk impactor over Russia in 2013 that injured thousands, to the impactor that formed Maharashtra’s Lonar Lake crater 5,00,000 years ago, meteor impacts are a part of life on our planet. In the last year, NASA has announced plans to ramp up its asteroid search and monitoring programs to identify thousands of potentially hazardous asteroids, and make plans to divert these asteroids if one is found headed toward Earth.

Dr. Henry Throop will talk about the risk of asteroid impacts on Earth, and what can be done about them. He will also describe his research into studying these bodies using telescopes in South Africa, and discuss how amateurs can contribute to this search.
