The first scheduled speaker, Lindley Johnson, is a victim of the winter storm hitting the US East Coast, so he will not be giving the first lecture tomorrow in the new Asteroid Virtual Seminar Series. Lindley Johnson and David Morrison have traded speaking times.
Therefore, the first lecture (a historical overview NEAs and planetary defense), will be given by David Morrison at 11am Eastern on February 14.
