“Low probability events, can and do happen” Brent Barbee, Aerospace Engineer and Astrodynamicist

Asteroids are random events, making them difficult to detect in time. Asteroids constitute a constant threat towards Earth, because even though they do present a low probability, they can and do occur, causing devastating effects.

The EADP initiative is inspiring and fascinating. Considering the fact that asteroids threat the whole world, it makes sense that the people of the world unite towards a solution for its defence.
