General information

Leading scientist's research interests: Space research and technologies

Quote by the head of the laboratory: With currently present technologies we can't find or prevent the majority of dangerous asteroids. Our project will allow allow to implement a prevention system that will be able to warn about approaching danger at least one day in advance and will allow to conduct evacuation. And if we don't want to end up like dinosaurs we should create a planetary asteroid defense system.
