An African Observatory Hunts Killer Asteroids

One of the Planetary Society s 2018 Shoemaker Near-Earth Object grants has gone to astronomers searching the sky from a mountaintop in the North African nation of Morocco. Observer Michel Ory tells us about their work. Tim Spahr ran the Minor Planet Center for many years. He has moved from that worldwide coordinator for asteroid and comet discoveries to NEO Sciences LLC, and served once again as chair of the Shoemaker NEO judging committee. Wait till you hear what poor Yuri Gagarin had for lunch as he orbited Earth. That s just one thing you ll learn from this week s What s Up segment.

Featured Speakers: Amateur Astronomer Michel Ory, Near-Earth Object Expert Tim Spahr, Planetary Society Chief Scientist Bruce Betts, Host Mat Kaplan
