NEOshare scientific return
Diverse sample set
Almost all launch opportunities have the potential to encounter more than 100 near-Earth asteroids and 20 near-Earth comets for up-close study.
We will characterize in detail the surface geology, mineralogy, ice-volatile-organic inventory, density and other properties.
We are seeking members interested in contributing to science analysis, instrumentation such as imagers and spectrometers, and small spacecraft systems like propulsion and computing.
We welcome your ideas!
