    This is the mission - save planet Earth from being struck by a killer asteroid. On Astronomy Day 2008, the Arrowhead Astronomical Society, U.M.D. Astronomy Club and U.M.D. staff attempted to replicate this scenario by sending astronauts up into space, traveling to the asteroid and planting 1,000 hydrazine rockets onto the asteroid to 'steer' it away from impacting the earth. Watch as the mission unfolds inside the lecture hall and then outside on the blustery surface of Astroid 1.
