Extinction events: The man helping protect earth
By Caleb Spencer BBC News 28 June 2020


The Astronomy Group planned twice to go of a visit to the space Guard Centre, without success so far.  we should have been there this month!



Perched on top of a remote, wind-swept hill in rural mid-Wales sits a series of structures designed to protect us against "one of the most significant risks to human civilisation".  The Spaceguard Centre, near Knighton, in Powys, is a working observatory which tracks "near-Earth objects" - comets and asteroids which could hit Earth.
