While headlines routinely report on "close shaves" and "near-misses" when near-Earth objects (NEOs) such as asteroids or comets pass relatively close to Earth, the real work of preparing for the possibility of a NEO impact with Earth goes on mostly out of the public eye. For more than 20 years, NASA and its international partners have been scanning the skies for NEOs, which are asteroids and comets that orbit the Sun and come within 30 million miles (50 million kilometers) of Earth's orbit. International groups, such as NASA's Planetary Defense Coordination Office (PDCO), the European Space Agency's Space Situational Awareness-NEO Segment and the International Asteroid Warning Network (IAWN) have made better communication of the hazards posed by NEOs a top priority. In the spirit of better communication, next week at the 2019 Planetary Defense Conference, NASA's PDCO and other U.S. agencies and space science institutions, along with international partners, will participate in a "tabletop exercise" that will play out a realistic - but fictional - scenario for an asteroid on an impact trajectory with Earth. The scenario begins with the fictional premise that on March 26, astronomers "discovered" a NEO they consider potentially hazardous to Earth. After a "few months" of tracking, observers predict that this NEO - dubbed 2019 PDC - poses a 1 in 100 chance of impact with Earth in 2027 (in real life, the international community has decided that a 1 in 100 chance of impact is the threshold for action). Participants in this exercise will discuss potential preparations for asteroid reconnaissance and deflection missions and planning for mitigation of a potential impact's effects.

The day the asteroid might hit

Posted by Deborah Byrd in Human World | Space | April 28, 2019
For the 1st time, the European Space Agency will cover progress of a hypothetical asteroid impact scenario – this week – live via social media, from the heart of the Planetary Defense Conference in Washington, DC.

Hypothetical orbit for fictional asteroid 2019 PDC, via ESA.
The European Space Agency (ESA) said late last week it’ll be tweeting coverage of a major international asteroid impact exercise live via social media from April 29 to May 3, 2019. You can follow the coverage via the @esaoperations Twitter channel. It’s a drill – much like the tornado drills some of us underwent in elementary school – but in this case conducted by scientists, space agencies and civil protection organizations, all acting as if an asteroid is headed for an impact with Earth. This exercise – simulating a fictional, but plausible, imminent asteroid impact – is conducted every two years by asteroid experts across the globe. It’s being conducted from the Planetary Defense Conference in Washington, D.C. ESA said:
During the week-long scenario, participants – playing roles such as ‘national government’, ‘space agency’, ‘astronomer’ and ‘civil protection office’ – don’t know how the situation will evolve from one day to the next, and must make plans based on the daily updates they are given.
Follow the live coverage April 29 to May 3 via @esaoperations on Twitter
You can also participate, in a more limited way, via ESA’s Facebook page. It will host two livestream videos straight from the Planetary Defense Conference. The first will be today (Sunday, April 28) at 12 UTC (14 CEST, 8 a.m. EDT; translate UTC to your time) with Rüdiger Jehn, ESA’s Head of Planetary Defense. The second will be Thursday, May 2, at around mid-afternoon European time.
