Chris Hadfield 150 150 Asteroid Day

“The threat is low, but the result can be extremely high.”

“Any night that you look up and see the shooting stars in the sky, you are reminded that we are constantly at a level of threat from bits of rock hurdling through our Solar System. Some of them are big enough to do significant damage.”

“Now for the first time in our history, we are at a level of technological capability to, maybe, detected and do something about the threat from asteroids.”

“Think about the environment that we live in, about some of the threats that exist, about some of the things we can do about it, and what you might, personally, consider being a part of as a citizen of this world.”

“We live in a cosmic shooting gallery that’s hit by hundred tons of meteorites every day.”
