Artist's animation of incoming asteroid

This artist's animation shows an asteroid approaching Earth and passing by it. As it gets closer to our planet, the locations of the European Space Agency’s (ESA’s) Test-Bed Telescope 1, in Spain, and Test-Bed Telescope 2 at ESO’s La Silla Observatory become visible. The two telescopes will keep a close eye on the sky for asteroids that could pose a risk to Earth, working together to test hardware and software for a future telescope network, ESA’s Flyeye.
