How would the world react to the threat of an asteroid impact?

asteoride-g The media are meeting today with experts from the European Space Agency (ESA) at the Darmstadt operations center (Germany) to answer a question: how should we react to the threat of an asteroid impact?

The High Level Mission Planning and Operations Group (MPOG) workshop is the latest in a series organized to brief the United Nations (UN) Commission on the exploration and use of outer space with peaceful purposes, and includes representatives of the main space agencies. "The workshop is focusing on plans and recommendations for global coordination and response in the event that an asteroid may pose an impact threat to Earth," explains its coordinator, ESA's Detlef Koschny.

Today it is planned to define the future planning and study tasks of the group that will later join other experts and create for the UN committee a report with recommendations on how to react to an impact threat. The meeting will be attended by Rusty Schweickart, Apollo 9 astronaut and Chair of the ASE Committee at OCT, and Brian Weeden, Technical Advisor to the Safe World Foundation, an expert on space debris and space-related collision and policy issues.
