Renowned Physicist Prof. Stephen Hawking spoke in a video made by our Partners Asteroid Day, a global movement dedicated to protecting our species and raising awareness about Asteroid threats, co-founded by Brian May and Grigorij Richters.

Professor Stephen Hawking said: “One of the major threats to intelligent life in our universe is the high probability of an asteroid colliding with inhabited planets.”

Asteroid Day’s movement is a wake-up call to humanity, urging scientists, politicians and the public to take the threat seriously.

As the date on the finalization of the Asteroid Impact Mission (AIM) mission is approaching, the mission concept is being consolidated in view of a potential discussion at ESA’s Council of Ministers in December 2016 for approval.
