Comment Re:NASA Cancels B612 Sentinel Agreement and Then P (Score 2) 182

NASA's Office of the Inspector General is fairly disappointed with NASA's progress in NEO detection (much less amelioration)

Rusty Schweickart tells me there are an estimated one-million asteroids of 45-ish meters which is Tunguska size

The B612 group has done a poor job of keeping the community (and apparently NASA) informed of their progress and challenges. Perhaps a more transparent effort would work - even showing lack of progress would be progress here. They have indeed struggled with engagement - they only have 600 followers on G+ for example

I had a dream about owning once. First I turned it into a porn-by-email site, and when Microsoft complained I turned it into my own email site. Of course because all the sign ups were new people would register and start getting the old Bill's email.

Isn't that how hotmail works now?
