After receiving more than 400 responses to the Asteroid Initiative RFI, a team of NASA scientists, engineers, and mission planners evaluated the proposed ideas. The evaluation team rated the responses for relevance to the RFI objectives, innovativeness of the idea, maturity of the development approach, and potential to improve mission affordability.
Nearly 100 respondents have been invited to present their ideas and concepts during the Asteroid Initiative Idea Synthesis Workshop alongside NASA personnel and members of the larger community, including virtual participants. The purpose of this workshop is to further examine and foster a broad discussion on these newest ideas and help inform NASA’s planning activities.
Due to capacity constraints, onsite attendance will be limited to invited, registered presenters at this time. Virtual participation is strongly encouraged. We will provide virtual participation options on this page as the workshop nears. There is limited seating for media interested in attending; members of the media should contact Sarah Becky Ramsey at 202-358-1694 or Rachel Kraft at 202-358-1100 for additional information.
