If Prof.Stephen Hawking had something to do with this Day, it is definitely a privilege.
From recent history, 30th of June 1908 has recorded the most harmful Asteroid related incident.
In a remote forest in Siberia,
A fireball the size of about 50 to 100 meters (wide) flattened 80 million trees and destroyed 2,000 sq km of the Taiga forest.
History does repeat itself.
This day hopes to increase awareness and encourage research to avoid a cat(astro)phe in the future.
A Fun fact from the Music Industry:
Brian Harold May, the lead guitarist of the British rock band Queen is also an Astrophysicist.
He co-founded the Asteroid Day along-with Stephen Hawking!
Named after him is the Asteroid 52665 Brianmay
30th June – An important day indeed!
