Win a Trip to SGC and IAC with the 2010 Move an Asteroid Competition!

26 May 2010

SGAC's Near Earth Object Working Group is happy to announce its third annual Move an Asteroid technical paper competition.

While previous years’ competitions asked contestants how to move an asteroid, this edition of the competition challenges students and young professionals worldwide to come up with ideas for a global asteroid impact early warning system. The perfect warning system would bring together the four elements of early detection, deflection technology, warning methods, and decision-making to best meet the threat of asteroids. Contestants are asked to address some or all of these issues in their submissions of ten pages or fewer.

One skilled winner will earn a fully paid trip to Prague, Czech Republic to present the findings at the 2010 Space Generation Congress (SGC) and the International Astronautical Congress (IAC). The prize will include round-trip airfare, as well as hotel and registration for both the SGC and IAC
