NASA still looking for a rock with our name on it…or trying to

NASA has created a new website to provide information about near earth asteroids and the ongoing search for all asteroids that area  threat to Earth.  Apparently they are also doing a bit of self promotion to drum up support for money.  As usual, NASA has not been given enough money to fullfil all its missions, especially their requirement to find all significant Earth crossing asteroids (over 460 ft wide) by 2020.

You can also follow them on twitter at #asteroidwatch, now no one can say your frantic checks for updates are pointless right?
