Planetary Defense at NASA

NASA’s Planetary Defense Coordination Office (PDCO) leads efforts to find and track near-Earth objects—asteroids and comets that can come near Earth—and to address the asteroid impact hazard. The Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART), targeted for launch in late November, is NASA’s first test mission of an asteroid deflection technique. Join panelists from the PDCO and DART teams to learn more about planetary defense at NASA and DART’s epic journey to the Didymos binary asteroid system.
