Find out about the ongoing word-wide search for potentially hazardous asteroids and learn how robotic telescopes are used to track them. Jay Tate (The Spaceguard Centre) and Dr Andrew Newsam (Liverpool John Moores University) explain the risk that asteroids and comets pose to the Earth and human existence.
