From time to time, Asteroid Day Editor-in-Chief David Eicher will reflect on small bodies in the solar system and what they mean to us. He’ll write about the danger from potential asteroid impacts, what scientists know about the various types of asteroids, historical impacts like Tunguska and Chelyabinsk, and how we can appreciate the need to know more about the rocks orbiting around Earth in the solar system. Join him for some reflections on this great big universe . . .
