STEM & Space – IASC Asteroid Search Campaign
Empowering Citizen Scientists to Make Astronomical Discoveries
The STEM & Space Asteroid Search Campaign, in collaboration with The International Astronomical Search Collaboration (IASC), is a month-long project that empowers citizen scientists and students worldwide by providing high-quality astronomical data to make original discoveries.
By participating in this campaign, students are able to participate in hands-on astronomy and get access to real observatory data. They gain insights into the possibility of asteroid impacts and how they are tracked for planetary defense.
The International Astronomical Search Collaboration (IASC) is NASA’s citizen science campaign. It is an online program where school students make original Main Belt Asteroid discoveries and important Near Earth Object observations.
Pan-STARRS: Panoramic Survey Telescope and Rapid Response System for wide-field astronomical imaging. It is the largest single research project at the Institute for Astronomy, University of Hawaii. Funded by NASA’s Near-Earth Object Observation Program, it is currently employed to hunt and track potentially dangerous space objects.
