Lord Martin Rees – Signatory and Astronomer Royal 150 150 Asteroid Day

“The ancients were correct in their belief that the heavens and the motion of astronomical bodies affect life on earth – just not in the way they imagined. Sometimes those heavenly bodies run into Earth. This is why we must make it our mission to find asteroids before they find us.”

“The only way we can insure the people and governments remain aware of these long term risks, which cumulatively are serious, is through the public being aware of them.”
