Slooh NASA Asteroid Trackers
Slooh & NASA signed a Space Act Agreement in 2014 to support citizen astronomers in tracking near-Earth asteroids as a part of NASA’s Asteroid Grand Challenge. Once asteroids are discovered, they must be observed over the course of several evenings to precisely determine their orbits, or else they get lost again. Slooh members are leading the cause to make submissions to the Minor Planet Center to track these phantoms of the night. Join Slooh’s A-Team, a special group organized with NASA to train legions of new astronomers to help protect our planet. After all, we are smarter than the dinosaurs, aren’t we?
