Lunar and Planetary Institute says
In 2013 the world was riveted by the impact of an asteroid near the Russian town of Chelyabinsk, where over 1,000 people were injured. It was an eerie reminder of another, bigger, impact event that flattened a forest near the Tunguska River in Siberia on June 30, 1908-and a modern-day example of the immense dinosaur-killing Chicxulub impact event in the Yucat√°n. As an update to his 2015 Asteroid Day presentation, Dr. David Kring will describe the magnitude of their persisting threat today, and the steps we might take to mitigate these types of calamitous events in the future. This event is sponsored by the Lunar Planetary Institute.
