by | Nov 20, 2009 | Seradata News | 0 comments

The Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) has produced this video about near Earth objects, asteroids or comets in other words, and planetary defence

According to SGAC: “First conceived at the 2008 Space Generation Congress, the intention of the documentary is to convey non-exaggerated facts about the dangers we face from space impacts. It also provides a way for students and young professionals to get involved with planetary defence by promoting the ‘Future of Planetary Defence’ conference which is planned to be held in Romania in 2011. This conference will precede the 2011 Planetary Defence Conference and will be designed to allow a platform for the younger attendees to openly discuss their opinions.”
