The Association of Space Explorers (ASE) is an Asteroid Day founding partner and a non-profit organisation comprised of individuals who have completed at least one Earth orbit in space (above 100 km/62 mi, as defined by the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale). It was founded in 1985, and today includes 406 members from 36 countries. ASE provides a forum for the promotion of space exploration, as well as space science, engineering and environmental awareness.
Asteroid Day is a global awareness campaign where people from around the world come together to learn about asteroids, the impact hazard they may pose, and what we can do to protect our planet, families, communities, and future generations from future asteroid impacts. Asteroid Day is held each year on the anniversary of the largest impact in recent history, the 1908 Tunguska event in Siberia. Subscribe to our Mailing list
