Event Details

Join us for an asteroid day celebration, a global effort to highlight asteroid detection, research, as well as the current and future missions to explore them. Our celebration will include a recorded interview by a panel of Chabot’s teen Galaxy Explorers of Astronaut Dr. Edward Lu, Executive Director of the Asteroid Institute and one of the founding members of B612, an organization that works towards protecting the Earth from asteroid impacts.

Our speakers of the evening will be Dr. Thomas Prettyman, Senior Scientist at the Planetary Science Institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on what small bodies have to say about planetary evolution and the importance of asteroid research and Chabot astronomer Gerald McKeegan on Chabot’s asteroid research, detection processes and discoveries.
