Looking Up: Far Away Asteroids featuring Simone Marchi

We occasionally hear reports of Near Earth Asteroids and perhaps our memories of the movie Armageddon make us expect the worst. But just how near is "near"? On this episode of Looking Up, Dean and Anna discuss asteroid distances, sizes, and threats as well as all other things asteroid. Find out what records may exist of the impacting living beings on Earth. What happened when a woman in Canada thought she found a meteor in her bed? What's our individual likely-hood of being hit?

We are joined by Deputy Project Scientist for the Lucy mission and Staff Scientist at the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, CO, Simone Marchi.

Gravity Assist: Lucy and the Space Fossils, with Hal Levison

The planets of our solar system didn’t have such stable orbits a few billion years ago. The giant outer planets moved around chaotically in their orbits, and Uranus and Neptune may have even switched places. To get a more complete understanding of the full history of our solar system, NASA is sending a spacecraft called Lucy to investigate the Trojans, mysterious small objects that share an orbit of the Sun with Jupiter. Principal investigator Hal Levison of the Southwest Research Institute’s branch in Boulder, Colorado, discusses this exciting mission, launching Oct. 16, 2021.
