    Planetary Defense from Asteroids and Comets


    This session will address all aspects of the hazards associated with asteroids and comets. We welcome topics including those related to observing near-Earth objects (discovery, orbit determination, and characterization), along with innovative approaches (strategies, mission architectures, capabilities, and technologies) for mitigating the effects of an impact through deflection, disruption, and/or civil defense efforts. Additionally, topics related to the coordination of mitigation efforts (from the local level to international cooperation), informing decision-makers, and communicating with all audiences will also be included are also invited. Aspects of planetary defense that are common with other fields and initiatives, such as robotic missions and asteroid mining, along with applicable lessons learned and recent advances, are particularly encouraged.
