Kate Russell gives us her latest selection of the best sites on the World Wide Web.

FAIR Society website screen grabFAIR Society The BBC is not responsible for the content of external internet sites.

NEO's, or Near Earth Objects, are the topic of conversation on FAIR Society, which was sent in by its creator David Fagan.

I found the articles, which are all about things that have, will, or might collide with Earth, to be well written, balanced, and highly informed.

I was shocked to learn about the near misses, and even direct hits, from space rocks and asteroids that we have suffered in the past.

Once I got stuck in I actually spent far more time exploring this site than I had planned, which is always a good sign.

Apart from the first class content and links, there is another point to this website.

It seems NEO scientists find it hard to get funding, which seems strange when you consider that the odds are more in favour of you getting wiped out by an asteroid than a tornado, according to one linked article from space.com.

Fair Society gives you the chance to donate hard cash to the effort of protecting our planet from interstellar flying objects.

There is absolutely no obligation to do so, but I love the fact you can actually see photographs of the equipment paid for by donations so far.
