Near Earth Objects and Planetary Defence is a volunteer made documentary about the current issues surrounding defending the Earth from Asteroid and Comet impacts.

Scientists and Astronomers have long worried about the potential devastation that an impact from space could cause, but recently Engineers have been designing realistic missions to stop these natural disasters.

In this documentary, International Experts give their opinions on how to plan, pay for, build and safely execute a mission to stop an Asteroid or Comet.
