Ed Lu 150 150 Asteroid Day

“Asteroid Day has two main goals, to get people to realize, number one: the issue of asteroids hitting the earth is important, and number two: that we, using our brains, using science and technology, can change that.”

“The thing that is keeping us from protecting the earth from asteroid impacts is that we don’t know where they are. We haven’t accurately tracked them. We don’t know when the next major asteroid impact is going to be. How do we step up our game by a factor of a hundred? That’s our aspirational goal. Lets do 100 times better than we’re doing now at finding these asteroids. That will give us a fighting chance. That is what will allow us to be smarter than the dinosaurs.”
