No need for Bruce Willis just yet
For those who missed it, this week, Faulkes Telescope Project, who I work for as their Pro-Am programme manager and the European Space Agency's, (who I work for in the space science communications division) Space Situation Awareness team agreed to work together on keeping our planet safe. Detecting potentially hazardous near Earth objects is critical work, and between us, we're going to do our best to help look for and find these asteroids.
As part of a major ongoing solar system science project working with schools, students and the wider science community, and it all ties in with work we're doing on comets/snoopy etc... There's a lot of interesting stuff on our solar system, and we're picking up new objects almost every week
