Please donate to bring Perth Observatory’s “Comet Hunter” Near-Earth Asteroid Object Telescope back to life.
During 2019 NASA identified more than 20,000 known Near-Earth Objects large enough to be tracked in space before striking the Earth. Asteroids can damage the surface of the Earth producing tsunamis, firestorms and impact winters.
Physicist Stephen Hawking considered an asteroid collision to be the biggest threat to the planet. In 199 the Perth Observatory built and commissioned a revolutionary asteroid and comet tracking telescope, named the Mike Candy Telescope after the former Government Astronomer of Western Australia.
This telescope needs restoration so we can enable the renewal of Near-Earth Asteroid research at Perth Observatory.
