Kick Asteroid Campaign

Kick Asteroid: Planetary Defenders, Earth Needs You!

The Planetary Society is excited to partner with space artist and designer, Thomas Romer, and backers around the world to create Kick Asteroid—a colorful graphic poster that will illustrate the effect of past catastrophic impacts, and methods to deflect future asteroid threats. Compelling and scientifically accurate art will be created for posters and other “merch” that backers can use in their everyday lives to spread the word about planetary defense.

Join the movement and be a Planetary Defender!

There’s no time to spare… ! And with your help, the Society is gearing up to do its part. There are many things we can be doing to help protect against asteroid threats and we want to give you awesome artwork that helps you spread the word.

The most important step right now is simple: be aware and share. The more people who know about the asteroid threat the better. Educating the public will, in turn, guide the world leaders who will then be inspired to fund the research we need now and the asteroid deflection missions when the time comes.

By backing this project, you can engage with others about asteroid defense. You will be doing your part to protect the people of Earth from a devastating impact.

Victor Bar presenting NEOShield in Israel in line with Asteroid Day

This year in Israel was the 4th Asteroid Day in a row and our agent Victor Bar educate the public in two events about our NEOShield-2 project.

Please find some impressions of his work in his summary of the events.

A month before Asteroid Day I published a quiz about Asteroids in General and the NEOShield-2 project. Finally, 35 people participated in the quiz and tried to do their best to answer the selected questions. Some of the participants managed to score very high and so they received prizes, which were provided by NEOShield-2 Team in advance.

Furthermore, I lectured 80 people during Asteroid Day at two Events – took place in Netanja and Givaataim. The speech was about raising awareness to Asteroids, the interesting exploration of OSIRIS-Rex and Hayabusa-2 and of course NEOShield-2 Project as our best hope to mitigate the threat.

Once more we managed to stay safe from asteroids, but what will happen when our luck runs out?
