Asteroid Day is a global awareness campaign where people from around the world come together to learn about asteroids and what we can do to protect our planet, families, communities, and future generations from future asteroid impacts. Asteroid Day will be held on the anniversary of the Tunguska event in Siberia, the largest asteroid to impact Earth in recent history – an asteroid that devastated an area about the size of any major metropolitan area. Regionally organized large and small events will be held on Asteroid Day – from live concerts and community events to lectures and other educational programmes, to support a movement calling for increased detection and mapping of asteroids.
SPACE India will disseminate Asteroid Day information pan India and suggest events and activities which will create an awareness of asteroids and asteroid impacts. At the college and organizational level special events, lectures, talks and interactions will be encouraged.
Continuing the exchange of knowledge and passion about Asteroids, SPACE India in collaboration with Nehru Planetarium and Nehru Memorial Museum and Library (NMML), New Delhi, is organizing two interactive sessions with the SPACE Asteroid Discoverers and an Asteroid Expert, Patrick Michel, consecutively.
The event will also have a LIVE Planetarium Dome Show, plotting the positions of Provisional Asteroid Discoveries under the international asteroid hunt programme, All India Asteroid Search Campaign, organized by SPACE India, in collaboration with International Astronomical Search Collaboration of all the 7 years from 2010-2016.
