In case you’re watching: We took part in two of the documentaries shown Saturday (“Man vs Asteroid” and “How to survive an asteroid strike”).

 

People may also be interested to follow the Hayabusa spacecraft: http://www.hayabusa2.jaxa.jp/
This may be interesting, too. We didn’t talk about it, as it was published the day after we did the recording: https://www.space.com/40943-nasa-asteroid-defense-plan.html
In the show, Daniel the rate of impacts on the Moon. That’s from here:
https://www.space.com/34372-new-moon-craters-appearing-faster-than-thought.html

Reading this again, it turns out the number I gave was wrong. The actual number of impacts is much higher.

Up to 20 per day But since I gave the number to illustrate there are a lot of impacts, having underestimated it shouldn’t be too bad.
