Chating with Don Yeomans, the man charged with protecting our planet.
It’s a popular theme in sci-fi movies–an asteroid on a collision course with earth. So what would happen if fiction became reality? Luckily for us, there’s a team of NASA engineers dedicated to protecting the planet.
NASA is known for sending objects into space, but the Near Earth Object program (NEO) team is dedicated to making sure nothing hits our planet.
We met up with Donald Yeomans, who leads NEO, to talk about what it takes to keep our planet safe.
