Have you heard of Asteroids? Yes, Asteroids are tiny, minor planets present at the inner Solar System. But have you heard of a day that is celebrated to raise awareness about the asteroids?
Yes, each year on 30th June we celebrate International Asteroid Day aiming to not only raise awareness about the Asteroids but also to think and discuss deeply on how to protect the Earth, its families, communities, and future generations.
Asteroid Day is held on the anniversary of Tunguska explosion. Tunguska explosion is the largest asteroid impact in Earths modern antiquity. It took place in Siberia on June 30, 1908. The event occurred when a small asteroid apparently exploded releasing an equivalent of 100 tons of TNT. The aftermath of the explosion resulted in the devastation of an area of about 800 square miles.
An astrophysicist and guitarist for the rock band Queen, Brian May began working as a music composer with Grigorij Richters for the film 51 Degrees North, the story of which revolves around asteroid explosions and its after effects. During a press conference in October 2014, they officially announced about the Asteroid Day.
The main goal of celebrating Asteroid Day is to bestow a day every year to learn about asteroids, the origins of our universe, and to provide the resources essential to understand, track and swerve hazardous asteroids from Earths orbital path. It is a common knowledge that asteroid impact is the only natural disaster that we know how to prevent.
As the third annual International Asteroid Day is happening today, June 30, 2017, let us dedicate some time to learn more about Asteroids, our very own planet and also on how to protect Earth from the asteroid impact.
