“Asteroid: Mission Extreme”. takes audiences on a journey 65 million years in the making to discover how asteroids are both a danger and an opportunity for those of us on planet Earth.

The danger of course lies in the possibility of a cataclysmic collision; the opportunity is the crazy idea that asteroids could be stepping stones to other worlds — veritable way stations in space — allowing us to penetrate the deepest realms of the universe.

The challenges are enormous, but the idea could ultimately save humankind. Explore with us the possibilities in “Asteroid: Mission Extreme”.
