    Default Working Remotely with NASA JPL



    I have posted this elsewhere, not sure the best forum, so apologies if the wrong place.

    My recent opportunity to be involved with NASA in the Asteroid 2012 DA 14 was a great experience and opened up a new door for me. Originally the request to image the 'rock' was made to the University Mt Canopus observatory, however, the 1.04 m
    telescope is 35 plus years old and not able to track objects moving at these speeds. So, it was passed on to me to see if I was interested. Always liked a challenge and never attempted to find/track a NEO before, I took up the challenge.

    I have just received a bundle of material from NASA including copies of what they sent by way of appreciation. They also included a DVD of the 30-minute live TV broadcast. To receive this sort of appreciation is more than I have received locally from some groups that I have put huge amounts of time & effort into, so I wanted to share my NASA experience with you.image0-001.jpgimage0.jpgimage1.jpgFullscreen capture 22032013 122957 PM.jpgFullscreen capture 22032013 73403 PM.jpg
