To Diversify Camping, This Group Sends Free Gear to Those in Need. Lack of affordable camping gear is often cited as a major—if not the major—impediment to getting more people outdoors.

To Diversify Camping, This Group Sends Free Gear to Those in Need

This is a deeper, more nuanced issue than it may first seem. It’s a vicious cycle. To enjoy yourself while recreating outdoors, at least when it comes to camping, you need decent gear.

What should we do if a 'planet-killer' asteroid takes aim at Earth?

We'll have to decide whether to visit it with a scout mission first, or launch a full-scale attack immediately. Those are a lot of decisions to make under existential duress, which is why a team of MIT researchers have come up with a guide, published February in the journal Acta Astronautica, to help future asteroid deflectors. In movies, an incoming asteroid is usually a very last-minute shock: a big, deadly rock hurtling right toward Earth like a bullet out of the darkness, with only weeks or days between its discovery and its projected impact. That is a real threat, according to an April 2019 presentation by NASA's Office of Planetary Defense that Live Science attended.
