Statement by the Asteroid Day Co-Founders:
“Today the United Nations General Assembly has officially declared June 30 as the International Asteroid Day. We founded the annual event to raise awareness of the asteroid threat and opportunity to unite the human species behind a simple goal: Protect our planet from asteroid impacts. It is the only natural disaster we know how to prevent if we work together towards a global solution. We are all crew members of spaceship Earth. We hope you will join us.”
