NEOShield

Asteroid impact avoidance system

Researchers say we can expect an asteroid to collide with Earth every few hundred years. The European research project NEOShield was set up to protect our planet from just such a catastrophe, with teams of researchers working to develop concepts designed to help avert these sorts of impacts and to alter asteroids’ orbits as they race toward Earth. Research scientists from Fraunhofer EMI in Freiburg are among those contributing to the work on the asteroid impact avoidance system.
