Around the world, people will be celebrating International Asteroid day. Brian May helped to set up this annual event and his PhD thesis was about asteroids. Join us for a discussion – are asteroids are friends or foes? Do we owe our existence to an asteroid? How can they help us understand how the solar system was formed?
