The events of July 16th to 22nd 1994, when the remnants of a fragmenting comet, P/Shoemaker-Levy 9, bombarded the

surface of Jupiter causing fireballs many times the size of our own planet, were an abrupt wake-up call even for those

who were aware of them. The historical sciences generally, and arch?ology in particular, have collectively painted

a picture of the past as if our planet ‘stands alone in empty space’. Nothing could be further from reality. Our

restless planet exists in a solar system that has experienced a very dynamic history over the past 20 to 30

millennia, and it is only from this perspective that the true history of human civilisation will ever be fully

understood. The Morien Institute Events List therefore contains details about relevant expeditions,

conferences, lecture-tours, workshops, study-tours and seminars covering many perspectives

“2004 Planetary Defense Conference: Protecting Earth from Asteroids”

“The 2004 Planetary Defense Conference: Protecting Earth from Asteroids conference will consider planetary protection from the systems perspective: define the threats, look at deflection options and available technologies, discuss characteristics of candidate missions to mitigate the threats, and consider the policy and disaster preparedness implications. Participants will develop a set of recommendations for improving our ability to successfully defend our planet from possible impact threats”
