When it comes, will we be ready?


Planetary Defense

An asteroid or comet headed for Earth is the only large-scale natural disaster we can prevent. Working together to fund our Shoemaker NEO Grants for astronomers, we can help save the world.

Planetary Defense: Help us prepare to defend Earth from a deadly asteroid impact.

The Earth is not immune to impact strikes by Near Earth Objects also known as NEOs. Most asteroids big enough to destroy a city remain undetected so the work of these ‘asteroid hunters’ is critical.

Through a gift for our Shoemaker NEO Grant program, you can help us support the dedicated astronomers who characterize and track NEOs to identify those that pose a threat. The more funding we have, the more astronomers we can support, which all translates into a safer Earth.
