Lecture: Near-Earth Objects: Finding Them Before They Find Us

Near EarthJoin Dr. Donald Yeomans of the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Academy of Sciences to learn why only an Earth impact by a large comet or asteroid has the potential to end civilization in a single blow. Yet these near-Earth objects also offer tantalizing clues to our solar system's origins, and someday could even serve as stepping-stones for space exploration. Yeomans introduces the public to the science of near-Earth objects -- its history, applications, and ongoing quest to find near-Earth objects before they find us. Reservations: Adults $12, seniors $10, and academy members $6.
