      DON’T MISS THE NEW MEXICO PBS JULY SCIENCE CAFÉ   on   ASTEROID: DOOMSDAY OR PAYDAY?   Sunday, July 15, 2018  10:00am-12Noon Pajarito Environmental Education Center 2600 Canyon Rd Los Alamos       The asteroid that exploded over Siberia—injuring more than 1,000 and damaging buildings in six cities—was a shocking reminder that Earth is a target in a cosmic shooting range.  From the width of a football field to the size of a small city, these space rocks have the potential to be killers.  For every near-Earth asteroid we have detected, there are thousands that we haven't.  We know they're out there.  When and where will the next one strike?   Come to the July New Mexico PBS Science Cafe, watch a segment of NOVA Asteroid: Doomsday or Payday?  Join a discussion with a panel of asteroid experts who will discuss the threats that asteroids pose and what scientists have done to protect against these threats.   Speakers include: Galen Gisler, Ph.D., who spent 25 years at Los Alamos National Laboratory working on the asteroid defense program Cathy Plesko, Ph.D., current member of the Los Alamos National Laboratory asteroid defense program and appeared in the PBS documentary.      Admission to the café is free, but a reservation is required.  For more information, contact rposton@nmpbs.org. Seats are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.   Be more curious…be more amazed..come to the New Mexico PBS Science Café.
