The impact of asteroid strike constrained, Kristensen told Task and Purpose Friday. Recommending it was anything but a risk to the few hundred military and non-military personnel faculty positioned at Thule.
Moreover, Thule under Peterson Air Force Base’s 21st Space Wing, 821st Air Base Group, works and keeps up rocket cautioning and space observation systems “satellite summon and-control activities missions,” as per the Air Force.
