Very insightful. Very. Heavy.
"where are the worker bees from NASA and other's like to spend their free time posting, surfing"
Back-channels likely... prolly a dedicated sub-net. Some pop up on NASA's own pub-acc boards... we had one guy actually roost here for a day or two
during STS-115... he's not around anymore, OK? Wink. I read there at NASA and it "don't feel quite Halal or kosher". No siree, seriously serially
surreal really DWW, the engine is knocking. Let's hope it's a search engine. When you have a mo' read Shana Dale's blog and you tell me who wears
the pants at NASA these days.
"a key mission of all NEO industry types was to raise public awareness of the NEO risk and what is being done to discover these potential risks. With
just a little push this could have been a prime story on front page. So why not "educate" as they state in their key missions. Think we have figured
that one out with moving day and all...but that just tells me there is more digging to do. If real data is going to be smothered in the future like
this, it makes even more sense."
You have put into verbage my exact sentiments and concerns. 2007TU24 was/is different from Apophis and every other asteroid story spun up in the last
decade. NEODys should have a comp release soon. I'm betting another 48 hours and the E MOID will open to about 0.00125 or there abouts. If someone is
screwing with the data or the actual object we might see "more wobble" factor... maybe less.
A friend (let's call him Ivan) in Boston writes for one of the science mags... he's working on a piece about this very problem. He's pretty damn
smart, and a real accredited scientist... used to do TV science up here and a whack of other "good" work. The money dried up... typically Canadian
brainage-drainage. When he publishes for his company I'll be sure and point it out.
Cheers DWW', thanks eh,
EDIT: So I go looking for the NASA guy... I was sure his handle was SapaceGuy or very similar. he was a member, he posted a funny pic from Houston
Control. Do you think I can find him in the ATS membership? I must have his handle wrong. I wanted to post the pic, dang.
Here's the member search I tried here.
I used SpaceGuy and space and a wack of
other likelies as search terms. No luck. Should my memory (which isn't great) actually remember or find buddy I'll post. Any other members remember
