The theme of the issue is asteroids and the danger they pose to humanity.

Where do asteroids come from?

By what means can they be detected?

What to do when an asteroid has already been spotted, is it possible to change the trajectory of its flight and turn away from the Earth?

Which asteroids are considered potentially dangerous?

How do they threaten humanity and how can catastrophes be avoided as a result of their fall?

The guests of the program discuss asteroids, features of their movement, examples of falls in different parts of our planet and existential risks (events that can destroy our civilization, including the asteroid threat).

Somewhat unexpectedly, another topic arose during the discussion: the fight against the asteroid threat can be considered as an opportunity that will allow developing new technologies and using the resources of celestial bodies.

Boris Shustov, Leonid Elenin, Vladimir Surdin and futurologist Evgeny Kuznetsov participate in the conversation.
