on our way

let's do this

The chance of an asteroid or comet impacting Earth is 100%

We just don’t know when it will happen. The sooner we know if an asteroid or comet is heading to Earth, the more time we have to deflect or disable the threat.

You can help power the search for Near-Earth Objects.

Every two years, the Planetary Society awards Shoemaker NEO Grants to fund equipment upgrades for passionate astronomers who spend countless hours working to find, track and characterize near-Earth asteroids that could have a devastating impact on Earth.

Through a gift for our Shoemaker NEO Grant program, you can 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.
