Asteroid Hunters

Recommendation inspired by:
The first asteroid ever discovered - Carrie Nugent

Why we love this book:

This is the perfect primer into one of the coolest jobs you probably didn't know existed: searching the solar system to make sure that civilization-ending asteroids aren't headed our way. Nugent's storytelling is top-notch, and her writing is clear, joyful, and full of curiosity. I read this cover to cover without being able to put it down.
