Oh God, we’re all gonna die! Well, one day, but hopefully not because a small celestial body has passed through our atmosphere and wiped out all life on planet Earth. Thankfully, such a scenario is not necessarily inevitable, at least for the foreseeable future, and who better to speak on the measures being taken to prevent such a catastrophe than a man who has actually been to outer space. Former NASA Astronaut and CEO of the B612 Foundation Dr. Ed Lu speaks at the Commonwealth Club Office about the science behind stopping such a world-killing asteroid before it strikes, including his own company’s efforts to launch the first privately funded deep space mission.
