Dr. Kelly Fast
Dr. Fast works in NASA’s Planetary Defense Coordination Office and is the manager of NASA’s Near-Earth Object Observations Program. Her job is all about trying to find the asteroids before they find us, understanding the asteroid population and their characteristics, and then helping to put resources in place so that if there ever is an impact threat, the pieces are there for addressing it. Dr. Fast can discuss the outcome of NASA's DART mission which will crash a spacecraft into an asteroid moonlet on Sept. 26, 2022.
