Connections: How can we prepare for an asteroid strike?

May 3, 2018

We discuss the recent asteroid that nearly missed hitting Earth. Our guests discuss techniques that we can use to protect ourselves, how much warning we’d need before a strike, and if we should redirect the space budget to prepare for these kinds of events.
