Watch Asteroid Day LIVE 2022!
Asteroid Day LIVE is the only broadcast dedicated to educating the public about asteroids. This past June, we returned to Luxembourg’s BCE Studio to shoot the four-hour production with special guests and astronauts Ron Garan, Ed Lu, Michel Tognini, Dorin Prunariu and Christer Fuglesang. Hosted by Stuart Clark, Sabinije von Gaffke, Patrick Michel and others, the broadcast featured scientists and team members from today’s most significant asteroid missions including DART, Hera, OSIRIS-REx, Psyche, Lucy, Hayabusa2 and more.
