Departmental Alum Handles Near Misses

Tuesday, November 1, 2011

Colonel Lindley Johnson, (BA Astronomy 1980), has had a busy few weeks. As Program Director of NASA's Near Earth Object (NEO) office, as well as the Lunar and Planetary Science U.S. Participating Investigators (USPI) office, he has had to field a lot of inquiries regarding the near miss of the asteroid YU55. If you are a PBS NewsHour regular, you may have seen him discussing the event in their Other News segment.
