Under Bob’s direction ARI has been very successful in NASA’s search for “Near Earth Objects” , potentially killer asteroids, with over 70 new objects to his credit. Many discovered by high school student using data from ARI’s telescopes in his “Killer asteroid” project. You can see one of these discoveries below.
ARI’s latest project is to building a new 50″ telescope, more on this new project later.
