Our January 2024 talk was from Dr Marta Ceccaroni who talked on the subject of “Asteroid Hazard Mitigation“. The threats and methods to avoid catastrophes following an asteroid whose trajectory will intersect with our own as we orbit the Sun. Marta is very active in this field of research and her presentation was informative and entertaining. Due to the observations, missions and experiments being carried out by this important endeavour it is looking likely that some workable solutions can be found, which with further development can be used to our advantage. The aim is to detect asteroids that are found to have intersecting orbits to Earth and of a size that are dangerous. Then, with the development of a method of disturbing and redirecting their trajectories the asteroids will miss impacting.
