Near Earth Objects

The NEO Information Centre is part of the UK Government's response to the Report of the Task Force on Potentially Hazardous Near Earth Objects and provides services to the public, educators, media and scientists to encourage understanding and advancement of NEO science. Our virtual exhibition and online activities allow users to learn about the nature of NEOs and the hazard they pose, find out what efforts are being made to detect NEOs and what could be done to avert a collision. We keep you informed with the latest news on NEO issues and enable you to voice your opinions through discussion forums and special events. We provide materials for educators, information and contact services for the media, and support for NEO scientists in communicating and conducting their work.
