  • ANALYSIS: On Asteroid Day, take a minute to look skyward

    News | 06 Feb 2015 14:47 | Dan Thisdell

    ​Anybody inclined to look at deep-space exploration mission proposals and their associated budgets and ask “why?” could do worse than consider the problem of so-called Near Earth Objects; that’s jargon for big chunks of rock that orbit the Sun – until they actually hit us. As long as they are out in space, call them asteroids; once they get so near as to be visible streaks of light in the sky, call them meteors – enjoy the spectacle and, for good measure, take cover.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-On-Asteroid-Day-take-a-minute-to-look-skyward-407507/
