Debbie Lewis received her MSc in Risk Crisis and Disaster Management from the University of Leicester in 2011. Her dissertation was entitled, “Near-Earth Objects: Imminent Catastrophe or Manageable Risk?” The scope of the dissertation dealt with the risks, to Earth, posed by Near Earth Objects (NEO) along with the existing capabilities for tracking NEO in addition to risk communication and warning the public if an Earth strike is predicted. Her research demonstrated and articulated the void that currently exists in the risk management planning, on multiple levels, for NEO events. She went on to design and deliver disaster management exercises for the International Academy of Astronautics Planetary Defence Conferences (IAA PDC) 2013 in Flagstaff, Arizona and 2015 in Frascati, Italy.
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
