Spaceguard UK is dedicated to the promotion of the international
Spaceguard programme, whose aim is to publicise the danger posed to Earth
by the possible impact of an asteroid or comet. The new Centre is intended
to become a world-class facility for astronomical research and science
education, with a specific emphasis on the Spaceguard Project. Its Director
is Jonathan (Jay) Tate.

threat, please go to the Asteroids page.
