Francesca Figueras at the radio programme La Nit dels Ignorants: "The probability of receiving a sign of life is very low"

Researcher Toni Santana-Ros collaborates with the DART mission to deflect an asteroid from its orbit
Bits of interplanetary dust and rock hit Earth all the time. Most of these are harmless and burn up in our planet’s atmosphere. Occasionally, some bigger objects make it through, causing local damage or, in extreme cases, massive devastation. But with the right technology and knowledge of asteroids’ orbits, scientists can anticipate and prevent an impact by defecting an asteroid just enough to avoid a collision.
The Institute of Cosmos Sciences will attend the XVI UB Trade Fair next Wednesday, May 4th, among one hundred other companies. The philosophy of this event is to foster knowledge transfer and lower the barrier between academia and industry to tackle the challenges of our society.
