Simulation: Hypothetical Asteroid Impact Scenario

Have you ever wondered what you or other people could do if we learn that an asteroid is predicted to hit the earth? Well, two young scientists, Arushi and Artash Nath (grade 6 and grade 9 respectively), attended the IAA Planetary Defense Conference 2021 to learn how we could deal with this possibility. They presented what they learned to the Recreational Astronomy Night meeting, which was held online June 2, 2021. Arushi and Artash are members of the RASC, Toronto Centre.
