    Orbit@home: A Missed Opportunity

    A Missed Opportunity
    Submitted by tricaric on Wed, 02/08/2012 - 01:23.

    Today we have received news about our proposal to NASA to fund this project. Our proposal was not selected for funding. It was evaluated as highly experimental and not likely to yield substantial improvements in asteroid discovery rate over existing search strategies.
    We remain dedicated to this project, and will continue to search for viable ways to support it, but it will take approximately one more year to hear back from the next round of proposals.
    We thank all the users who have been long waiting for some good news to see this project resume its activities. We missed this opportunity, but there will be others soon.
    A state where police work is easy, is also known as a police state.

    The Government will spend millions of dollars on methane gas from cow flatulence but can't fund research for asteroids or other near earth objects? Washington is broken.

    One cow produces more pollution per year then a Range Rover. Just ask Top Gear.
