ASTEROID DAY LIVE FROM THE NATIONAL AIR AND SPACE MUSEUM

On June 30, 1908, an asteroid caused a massive air blast that flattened thousands of square miles in Siberia. To mark the 110 year anniversary of the largest impact-related event in modern history, we’re bringing in asteroid experts to discuss the threats asteroids pose and how we are protecting ourselves from the danger they may cause. Bring your questions as we talk all things asteroids! Learn more about this event, here.
