Join Dr. Michael Busch for a presentation on Near Earth Asteroids and Space Missions. Learn about the importance of near-Earth asteroids (NEAs), a population of objects on orbit around the Sun that cross or come near that of Earth. They represent remnants of material from the early solar system that never accredited into planets. Dr. Busch will review the near-Earth population, as well as efforts to discover and characterize NEAs from the ground, and will also discuss past, current, and future missions to near-Earth asteroids. These include missions by NASA, ESA, JAXA, the Chinese National Space Agency, and other groups.
